Opposition parties, including Congress, are set to hit the streets on Monday against the Modi government’s decision to scrap high value currency notes.
The JD(U), however, decided not be a part of the proposed all India protest+ (Jan Aakrosh Diwas) as Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar has supported the demonetisation move.
Trinamool Congress, Left parties including CPM, AAP, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) have declared that they will be part of the protest.
Meanwhile, Congress took pains to emphasize that it had not given a call for a bandh on Monday. Accusing BJP of spreading misinformation, Congress said it had not called for a ‘Bharat bandh’ (shutdown) but only sought to observe ‘Jan Aakrosh Diwas’ by holding country-wide protests against the move.
The clarification came on a day when PM Narendra Modi took a swipe at his opponents by saying that instead of organizing bandhs, they should have joined the fight against black money.
