Sharma reminded the people that on November 8, 2016 at 8.00 p.m. Prime Minister Narendera Modi announced demonetization of 86 % of the currency, subsequently the entire countrymen, women, old and young were lined up before the ATMs but money were not available since the new currency did not fill the ATMs. Over hundreds of people died while standing in queues and crores suffered. The impact of demonetization was so bad that lakhs of workers lost their jobs, thousands of small scale and medium scale industries shut down. None of the aims of demonetization were achieved and nation experienced huge pain and economic shut down.
In view of this, the Congress party has decided to observe black day and hold peaceful procession in order to seek answer from Modi Govt.
