Amidst all the political hullabaloo over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move, there is every report of the common people being happy and satisfied with the decision to recall Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes. Despite facing inconvenience in the long queues at Banks and ATMs, common people are not seen expressing even a slightest degree of displeasure over this decision of the Modi government. All news channels and other sections of the media are continuously interviewing men and women in the long queues.
What they have found so far is all the folks backing PM Modi on the note recall decision. Almost every person interviewed by the media has said that it is good for the country in long term, so there is no point complaining about the problems the members of the public are facing at present. The surveys done by certain agencies and media houses have also come out with the result that 85 per cent of the people are backing the demonetisation move of the Modi government. But the political parties in Opposition, namely Congress, Aam Aadmi Party, Trinamool Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party, Nationalist Congress Party, CPI-M, CPI and Samajwadi Party, are in the spotlight for being opposed to the move on the pretext that it is causing inconvenience to common man and great loss to the economic activities across the country.
