PM should explain his idea of democracy
Salman Khurshid, the Congress leader and former foreign minister has said that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi thinks that the protests organised to further highlight the inconvenience caused to the people by demonetisation is a bad thing, then he should explain his idea of democracy.
“He (Prime Minister Modi) thinks that these protests are a bad thing and democracy should not have a protest, and then he should better further try and explain what his idea of democracy. If he does a good job, then he will get all the support, and, if he does a bad job, then he will become a victim of criticism. Whosoever is right will ultimately prevail,” he said.
“I do not think Prime Minister needs to worry about the issue of corruption, as he will get 100 percent support, but the issue of corruption must be further handled with honesty. Now, if you handle in a corrupt manner, obviously you will have to face opposition, handle it in an honest manner and the country and every party will support you and stand by you,” he added.
On Sunday, in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a swipe at the opposition over their plans to further organise a country-wide protest against demonetisation.
End the corruption
“We talk about ending black money and corruption, they (opposition) talk about shutting down the country,” he said.
He was addressing the BJP’s Parivartan Yatra rally.
Saying that his government is further dedicated to the poor, Modi thanked the public for their support in granting him 50 days to normalise the cash crunch situation.
On November 14, he was in Ghazipur district to inaugurate various government projects. Prime Minister Modi used the occasion to speak on demonetisation and asked the public to give him 50 days to improve the cash crunch situation.
