Mamata calls on opposition parties to fight over demonetisation issue

Kolkata : Stepping up her attack on the Narendra Modi-led Central Government over the demonetisation issue, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee appealed to all opposition parties on Thursday to “fight the political and financial anarchy” together.

In a series of tweets, the Trinamool Congress supremo dubbed the Modi regime “anti-poor” and urged the opposition to “work together boldly” against the “anti-poor government”.

“May I appeal to all political parties in the Opposition to work together boldly against the anti-poor govt at the Centre. Let us fight this political and financial anarchy together. We will be with you all,” she said.

Banerjee said she had enquired from all sections of the society about the present financial chaos.

“The feeling is that black money was to be brought back from outside as per the electoral assurance. But now the government has made the common people feel helpless and penniless. Is it right,” she asked.

Banerjee said there were “millions of real stories” across cities, towns and villages about the demonetisation “affecting the marginalised”.

Citing an example, she said “tea garden owners have expressed difficulty to pay wages on time”.

She added that this could lead to frustration among poor workers, most of whom are tribals.
