Demonetisation & GST have all been the much needed booster shots for Indian economy. Thanks to @narendramodiJi for taking transformational steps to revamp economy after UPA misrule for 10 years.#DeMoWins #TransformingIndia #NewIndia pic.twitter.com/DdCRIZ49U9— Dr. Shefalii Hindu (@imShraddhaK) November 8, 2017
It was last year, when everybody in India suddenly got to know that most of their cash no longer had any value.
The old Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes - 86 percent of currency in circulation - were scrapped after Prime Minister Narendra Modi made an unexpected announcement during a surprise television address. He also gave the nation's 1.3 billion people a 50-day window to either deposit them into bank accounts or exchange them for minted notes.
Now, the historic ban on high-value currency notes has approached its first-year anniversary, but the Congress-led Opposition still has a gap to close with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the viability of the reform. The political mobilisation against the exercise is still proving to be difficult.
While the BJP is celebrating the one-year mark of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mantra of a 'corruption-free India' as an 'Anti-Black Money Day' today, the Opposition is all set to protest against it by observing a 'black day.'
