Delhi Cong to observe Nov 8 as 'Black Day'
NEW DELHI: Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee has decided to observe November 8 as a 'Black Day' at Connaught place, to mark the first anniversary of the faulty and hasty implementation of demonetisation by the Narendra Modi government.
Delhi Congress Chief Ajay Maken on Thursday said that demonetisation not only "broke the backs of the poor, labourers and the middle class, but also rendered lakhs of people jobless, thereby driving out lakhs of people from Delhi."
"The demonetisation inflicted a crushing blow on poor labourers and the GST (Goods and Services Tax) inflicted a similar blow on small industrialists and traders. As a consequence, many poor labourers were rendered jobless," added Maken.
Maken said that on November 8 thousands of Congress workers will wear black clothes and form a human chain at Connaught Place. He added that he will attend district-level meetings regarding the preparations for the human chain.
