Opposing demonetisation is against country’s interest, says Devendra Fadnavis
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has recently said, those who are opposing demonetisation, PM’s biggest move to combat black money are harming the country and people should come together, in order to “win this decisive battle started against the black money”.
“We are going towards a new economic independence. In this battle for the economic independence, the person who further stands with Modi ji for the next 50 days will become a soldier in this battle, and the one who does not stand with the PM is definitely against this country,” Fadnavis said.
He was addressing a campaign rally for the municipal elections at Ratnagiri, which is situated in coastal Konkan yesterday.
“Now, you have to further decide whether you want to become a soldier in the battle for the economic freedom or whether you want to become a ‘desh virodhak’ (those against the country),” he said.
“We all should stand with Modi ji for the coming 50 days and win this decisive battle, which is started against the black money,” Fadnavis said.
