Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his failure to set up an infrastructure before introducing cashless society which has led to economic disaster in the villages.
The Chief Minister tweeted late in the afternoon and expressed her concern. She tweeted: “Why is BJP government doing vendetta politics? Our party LS leader got 3 calls from CBI. Nothing will deter us from fight against demonetisation.”Banerjee said while talking to newsmen after the administrative meeting on Tuesday afternoon: “There is no money in the banks and ATMs and he is talking about PayTms. He did not make any planning and the whole country is facing a disaster.”
Banerjee said development work had been stalled due to the “arbitrary” demonetisation. Earlier, in Bankura district, 30,000 people were engaged in 100 days work and now the figure has come down to 10,000. She said it was unfortunate that the workers could not withdraw their money from banks. “The labourers in the unorganised sector cannot withdraw their own money. So, how can they run their families and look after their children?”she asked.
