BJP's Parivaratan Rally
New Delhi:
PM Narendra Modi takes to Twitter to respond to Opposition barbs on demonetisation earlier in the day.

He says: “I salute the people of India for wholeheartedly participating in this ongoing Yagna against corruption, terrorism & black money.”

“The government’s decision has several gains for farmers, traders, labourers, who are the economic backbone of our nation.”

“I always said that the Government’s measure will bring a degree of inconvenience but this short term pain will pave way for long term gains.”

“No longer will the progress & prosperity of rural India be curtailed by corruption & black money. Our villages must get their due.”

“We also have a historic opportunity to embrace increased cashless payments & integrate latest technology in economic transactions.”

“Together, we must ensure India defeats black money. This will empower the poor, neo-middle class, middle class & benefit future generations.”
