New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) decision to withdraw its highest denomination currency notes from circulation.
Prime Minister had earlier said that bringing in the 2000 note would stop corruption. Now they are saying that banning the 2000 note will curb corruption. That is why we say the prime minister should be educated. Anyone can say anything to an illiterate prime minister. Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi that they don’t understand it, but the public has to suffer.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced on Friday that it had decided to withdraw the denomination notes from circulation. It has been instructed to deposit the current notes in banks by September 30 or exchange them with notes of other denominations.
The RBI has imposed a limit of Rs 20,000 on the exchange of Rs 2,000 notes with notes of other denominations at a time. This limit has been imposed so that the day-to-day operations of the bank branches should not be disrupted.
