Dubbing the Centre’s demonetization move as the “black policy of the black government”, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday visited banks and ATMs in the city to witness the “hardship” faced by the common people and demanded withdrawal of the decision.
She visited three banks and several ATMs at Sarat Bose Road, Bhawanipore and Chowringhee and spoke to the people there.
“These are all common people. Let the government nab the real culprits,” Banerjee said.
“I visited several bank branches and ATMs since morning. I spoke to the people … How they were facing this inconvenience due to an ill-planned and anti-people policy. Those who have black money are not standing in long queues,” she said.
“It (the Modi government) should immediately withdraw the decision. It is causing immense harassment to the masses. Most of the ATMs are still closed. From where will the common man get the money to run the family,” Banerjee asked.
