Trinamool protests note-ban, says people still suffering
Trinamool Congress, which has been vociferously opposing note ban, on Wednesday staged a protest on Parliament premises alleging people have been robbed of economic freedom by the Centre's decision three months ago and they "never saw and will never see" such suffering again.
"It has been three months since demonetisation was announced, but people continue to suffer even now. Hence, we are staging protest on Wednesday," party MP Kalyan Banerjee told reporters.
hings would be set right in 50 days after old Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes were withdrawn from circulation.
"Because of Modi's decision...people never saw such suffering caused by any move in the past and will never see again," he added. Party MPs from both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha took part in the protest held near Gandhi statue.
