Centre has come down heavily on Congress saying the opposition party is trying to play politics over a move that would benefit the country a lot. “ I want to ask Congress why doubt the policy and create confusion, why this ‘kintu-parantu’ It will do them no good. It is a pro-poor step; huge step towards making India a cashless economy” Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said.
“Apart from corruption;this will bring down inflation, will diminish parallel economy and huge setback for arms dealers. Government has also taken steps to provide Financial inclusion and social security to the people, the govt brought transparency. Government took a lot of measures when it came to power to curb black money, tax evasion and corruption” Mr Naidu said at a media meet.
Centre was peeved at Congress leader’s remarks that the real test for the government begins tomorrow as it has to ensure exchange of their money quickly and efficiently.
