KATHUA, Feb 12: Senior Congress leader and former MLA Billawar Dr Manohar Lal Sharma today accused the BJP Government causing damage to the economy of the country with demonetization and alleged that it had no impact on the black money.
Addressing a large gathering at Billawar town today, Dr Sharma termed this move of the Modi Govt as the biggest failure ever in the history of India. He said the Prime Minister failed to take any concrete step in actual to tackle the menace of black money in country. He said Modi tried to befool the people of the nation by shifting their attention towards demonetization from the actual issues in the country.
The Congress leader said that the demonetization step taken by Modi Government had negligible impact on black money as only 0.5 % black money could have been checked, but many other activities which encourage and promote black money are still going on and not a single initiative has been taken by Modi Government to check the further growth of black money in future.
Dr Sharma alleged the Modi and his people conveyed the decision to the nears and dears both in corporate and in political circle so that they may able to manage the things in time. He asked why the Modi Government is hesitating to reply the five questions asked by Rahul Gandhi even after a lapse of more than one month. The wrong and unplanned decision of demonetization badly effected the health of Indian economy due to which the GDP has showed decline.
Senior Congress leaders Ashok Sharma, Subhash Gupta and Mohinder Bhardwaj also addressed the gathering and attacked Modi Govt on demonetization decision. They alleged that Modi himself is responsible for the set back to the Indian economy as he did not take anyone into confidence before going for such a step.
