Bengal CM terms Modi’s note rollback ‘super Emergency’
Stepping up her attack on the Centre over demonetisation, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee On Wednesday dubbed the drive as “super Emergency” and vowed to agitate against it till a rollback of the decision.
“The government has taken away the freedom from the people that they have been enjoying for the past 69 years. The government has snatched ‘Roti, Kapda aur Makan’ from the people... A people’s movement was started during the Emergency days... Today, the situation is even worse than Emergency, it can be termed as super Emergency,” the Trinamool Congress supremo said.
“People are facing difficulties and inconveniences.They (NDA Government) have sold the country. It is the duty of political parties to raise their voice for the people and we will continue with our agitation till the government takes a decision to roll back the demonetisation move,” she said.
Mamata was addressing a gathering here in the course of her party’s nationwide campaign against demonetisation.
Raising the the issue of funding of PM Modi’s public meetings in foreign countries, she asked “From where do they get money to hold such mega public meetings in foreign countries like the US?”
