Time PM Modi introspects ills of demonetisation, quits: Congress

Finance minister Arun Jaitley addresses a press conference in New Delhi

The BJP on Wednesday accused the Congress of being "incapable" of understanding the objective of demonetisation.

The CPI-M has accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP of taking one step after another "to shield corruption and allow the rich to launder black money".

"Those who have never fought black money in their lives were too happy with laundering of cash in the system, but consider the entry of cash into the formal economy after tax payment as laundering".

"Instead of apologising for the death of over 150 people and unprecedented strike on livelihood of common Indians, the BJP is so drunk with power that it wants to celebrate the "Demon of Demonetisation", said the two Congress leaders. When cash gets deposited, it gets into the lawful system, he said. Jaitley said 18 lakh people who deposited money disproportionate to their income will have to pay tax now.

Alleging that the Prime Minister and the finance minister had refused to shun arrogance and autocracy", the Congress said in a statement: "Where is the recovered black money?

But after that we had a good attitude and we were even close to drawing the game, which is not so easy after playing bad the first 30 minutes".

"If morality is still a virtue in India's polity, then it is time for Prime Minister Modi to introspect and demit the office he holds", Sharma and Surjewala said. Confiscation of the money was never the object to the demonetisation.

"The results against black money can not be achieved by baby steps", he said adding this is why the economy is undergoing a transition process for the time being. But Jaitley cmaintained that major objectives behind demonetization of increasing the base of tax payers and digital transactions to make the country less reliant on cash have been achieved. "On November 8, the BJP will celebrate "Anti-Black Money Day" and mobilise people in favour of the steps taken against black money", Jaitley told reporters in New Delhi.

"There was a parallel black money economy in the country".

The BJP has also announced to observe November 8 as anti-black money day across the country.

The Finance Minister said the BJP would carry forward the debate by the opposition to polarise people against black money through its own campaign.

Azad was speaking in the presence of Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav and Trinamool Congress leader Derek O. Brien, besides others.

O'Brien described demonetisation as a "big scam" and added that TMC leader and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was the first leader to point this out.

On November 8, the party will organise programmes highlighting all the steps the government has taken against black money.
