Note ban is painful, Congress leaders on streets for common man

New Delhi: The pain of the note ban should not be forgotten easily.The cash situation may be easing, but this cannot be a balm on the pain that country suffered last year. Congress wants people to remember this before the assembly polls, especially when the RBI continues to restrict  weekly withdrawal of cash at Rs 24,000.


Top Congress leaders along with the workers on Wednesday picketed 25 Reserve Bank of India (RBI) offices across the country as a mark of protest against Modi government's note ban.

Congress says people are suffering because of the  Rs 24,000 weekly limit.

Congress leaders have alleged that on one hand the common man is suffering, on the other hand note ban failed to wipe out the black money as the lax government could not prevent the conversion of the ill-gotten wealth into gold and real estate.

Top congress leaders took to street during the protest. Rajeev Shukla led the protests in Chandigarh,Anand Sharma and Ahmed Patel in New Delhi, Randeep Singh Surjewala in Mumbai, N Sanjeeva Reddy in Kolkata, Kapil Sibal in Dehradun, KC Venugopal in Panaji, Shakeel Ahmad in Lucknow, Gurudas Kamat in Jaipur, Sushil Kumar Shinde in Ahmedabad and Salman Khurshid in Patna.  (Agencies)
