Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday claimed the corruption level in the country has grown after demonetisation.
"The Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) had on November 8 said that demonetisation aimed to finish corruption. But has corruption ended even by one percent after that? In fact, it has increased since then. Black money is on the rise," he said.
The AAP national convenor was addressing an election rally in South Goa's Cuncolim constituency.
"I am begging before you on behalf of the entire country to save our nation. Today a huge scandal has been unleashed on the country in the name of demonetisation. The economy is in distress," he claimed.
Kejriwal alleged that the tourism industry in the coastal state was in trouble and even the fisheries business was affected due to the move.
"I have seen in the entire country the industries are getting closed. The farmers are not able to work. Country's economy is sinking.
"There is also a rumour that demonetisation scheme is good but its implementation is bad. But I feel that the scheme itself is bad. Modi's intention with this move is also bad," he said. The Delhi Chief Minister also claimed that since demonetisation, several cases of corruption have come to light.
