New Delhi: Addressing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentary party meeting on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked MPs to reach out to the people to counter the Opposition misinformation on demonetisation.
“Demonetisation is not the end but beginning of our deep and continuous struggle against black money and corruption," Modi said at the meet urging his party MPs to inform the public about the positives of the currency ban, reports PTI.
Later, the BJP parliamentary party passed a unanimous resolution congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his great crusade against blackmoney and corruption, said Venkaiah Naidu.
In addition, Modi reached out to the people to directly convey their views to him on demonetisation. He asked the public to participate in a survey where a number of questions have been posed with regard to scrapping of old Rs500 and Rs1,000 currency notes.
“I want your first-hand view on the decision taken regarding currency notes. Take part in the survey on the NM App," the PM said in a tweet.
The Prime Minister’s move to gauge the views of the people comes at a time when the Opposition has escalated its attack on the issue of demonetisation. The Opposition parties will hold a sit-in protest outside Parliament on Wednesday.
