On 8th November 2016, Prime Minister of India Hon. Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of 500 and 1000 INR Notes as a legal tender from the next day. This was a historic decision made by the Prime Minister, to eradicate the black money issue. The media accounted it as a surgical strike on the black money, and massive step taken by Modi government in favor of people. Most of the population were praising the Prime Minister for the solution he came with. The news went booming to each Indian impacting his daily routine, whether he is a common man, industrialist, or a multi-millionaire. In the real sense for the Indian Economy, it felt as the oxygen was pulled out. To be much more specific that’s 86% of currency in circulation by value.
The demonetisation received support from several bankers as well as from some international commentators, although it was criticized by members of the opposition parties. Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, Mamta Banerjee were few of the top leaders opposing the move. However, the Government is in no mood to withdraw the decision by any means.
It seems the opposition, lacks the convincing power to change the mood of the people. Here is the news about the tweet backfired on Kejriwal. Also, the ATM drama by Rahul Gandhi was also failed, resulting in numerous jokes on social media. Shiv Sena is trying hard to keep them separated from this decision on all the possible platforms, but then too the Sena leaders seem to go short raising the concerns in an effective manner.
Here are few tweets by Opposition:
मोदी जी, कितने लोगों की जान लोगे? अब तो बंद कर दो। बहुत हाय लगेगी लोगों की। इतनी भी ज़िद ठीक नहीं। https://t.co/KkXniyOsc4

Meanwhile, the speech by the MNS Chief Raj Thackeray seems promising and factual than the other opposition with MPs, and MLAs in the center and the state. His speech conveys the opinion which the government should have considered, prior taking the economy changing move. Watch his speech on YouTube, addressing his party workers in Mumbai. It narrates how this can impact the stability of the Indian Economy, if things goes wrong. Appreciating but not congratulating the PM of India.
The current scenario seems lot many businesses are directly or indirectly impacted due to demonetization and suffering losses. As there is a massive drop in the cash flow. Nearly 50 people have been reported dead in incidents directly or indirectly caused by the central government move. The Huffington Post and The Indian Express published detailed reports on each of the deaths, suicides and a murder that took place, since the implementation of demonetisation. The common man is struggling now, and dreaming the betterment of the nation. This review video has some reaction from the public. They are anticipating, the government will take all the requisite decisions to place things as earlier or in a much better way for the expected ‘Ache Din’.
