Congress chief and former overseas minister Salman Khurshid has mentioned that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi thinks that protests organised to spotlight the inconvenience induced to the folks by demonetisation is a foul factor, then he should clarify his idea of democracy. “He (Prime Minister Modi) thinks protest is a bad thing and democracy should not have a protest, then he should better explain what his idea of democracy is. If he does a good job, then he will get support, and, if he does bad job, then he will be criticised. Whoever is right will ultimately prevail,” he mentioned.

“I don’t think Prime Minister needs to worry about the issue of corruption, as he will get 100 percent support, but the issue of corruption must be handled with honesty. Now, if you handle in a corrupt manner, obviously you will be opposed, handle it in an honest manner and the country and every party will support you and stand by you,” he added.

On Sunday, in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Modi took a swipe on the opposition over their plans to organise a country-wide protest in opposition to demonetisation.

“We talk about ending black money and corruption, they (opposition) talk about shutting down the country,” he mentioned.

Saying that his authorities is devoted to the poor, Modi thanked the general public for his or her help in granting him 50 days to normalise the money crunch state of affairs.

On November 14, he was in Ghazipur district to inaugurate numerous authorities initiatives. Prime Minister Modi used the event to talk on demonetisation and requested the general public to offer him 50 days to enhance the money crunch state of affairs.
