Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes ban: Modi proves his is not a lacklustre govt

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not the kind of politician who believes in run-of-the-mill style of working. On more than one occasion, PM Modi has shown it. And, he displayed it once again by declaring Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes as invalid in what is being seen India’s hardest ever crack-down on black money. PM Modi came unannounced on TV screens and launched a surgical strike against black money. This also underlines his different style of functioning.
This way he was able to send out a strong message to the black money hoarders that they should not even think of amassing illicit money even after the new currency notes of Rs 2000 denomination are released. Modi appearing himself on TV screens to make public the decision to ban Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes and telling the nation how his government is committed to going hard on corruption and black money served the purpose of giving stern message to the offenders. “I will show to the black money hoarders what the law is,” PM Modi had once said.
