Demand for Urjit Patel’s resignation
Patel, who was physically present during the widely covered press conference after the note ban, has never appeared in public to talk about demonetisation. Similarly, except issuing a few press releases, the RBI has not yet held any pressers to explain the cash situation in the country even after the 15 days of continuous confusion and panic among the general public.
Uproar for his resignation is also gaining ground as many hold him responsible for the problems caused to the Indian economy with the unprepared decision on demonetisation.
From the official’s of AIBOC
Even the top officials of All India Bank Officers Confederation, who claims to have the backing of over 2.5 lakh bank employees, have demanded the resignation from RBI governor, on grounds of poor planning by the central bank over demonetisation.
“Since past two weeks, all bank employees are continuously working from eight in the morning till midnight including weekends. Still, there is plenty of work to do. There has been absolutely no cooperation from the RBI’s side,” Vishwas Utagi, Vice president AIBOC said.
“The mess increased after the RBI banned all cooperative banks from exchanging old notes or accepting deposits,” he added.
“RBI Governor Urjit Patel has not uttered a single word, he should immediately resign,” he added.
Utagi also added that bank employees are adamant on their demand for the governor’s resignations as well as lockdown of the apex bank.
“When the move was announced, we welcomed it and were ready to put in efforts to make it smooth sailing, but then we realized how badly he had planned the whole process,” D Thomas Franco, Vice-President AIBOC, said.
