2 years of demonetisation: Congress to stage dharna in front of RBI office tomorrow

Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Congress has decided to stage demonstration in front of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) office building as part of its nation-wide protest on the second anniversary of demonetisation tomorrow. Slamming the Centre, the Congress alleged the BJP government at the Centre has ruined the economy of the country through demonetisation. Besides, rampant corruption occurred instead of weeding out fake notes, the party stated.

OPCC chief Niranjan Patnaik said members of the Odisha Congress will stage dharna in front of the RBI office opposing the demonetisation.

Commenting on the matter, BJP spokesperson Golak Mohapatra said the Congress is jealous with the achievements made by the Central government.

“The BJP government has achieved success in ease of doing business, bringing down inflation and other fields as well. As general polls are getting closer, the protest by Congress is a political drama only,” said Mohapatra.
