Youth Congress workers stage angry protests to mark 3rd anniversary of Demonetisation
NEW DELHI: Indian Youth Congress activists and leaders on Friday staged an angry protest outside the RBI Headquarters to mark the 3rd anniversary of Demonetisation imposed by the Narendra Modi government.
Shouting slogans and carrying placards in their hands, the protesters blamed the ruling NDA government for “ruining and wrecking” the Indian economy.
“Demonetisation led to disruptions in the economic and industrial activity of the Country. The lower domestic GDP growth in the past two years is largely on account of demonetisation which caused huge job losses and slowed down Indian economy,” alleged IYC President Srinivas BV who led the protest march.
He stated that the families of over 100 people who died because of demonetisation are still awaiting justice, but the present government has not taken note of their problems. “It is a black day in the history of India’s democracy and economy,” he added.
The IYC activists further asked the PM to apologise to the nation and all those who lost their life.
“The PM should apologise to all those who died for non availability of new currency notes and could not pay their hospital bills. He should apologise to those who faced daily hardship and lost valuable time in the process which never yielded the desired result,” the protesters demanded.
The protest march started from IYC headquarters at 5, Raisina Marg, New Delhi and concluded outside RBI headquarters’ gate.
