Congress holds marathon to observe 'black day' in Chhattisgarh”

"People have got multiple benefits from demonetisation like reduced rate of interest for loans, a decrease in real estate prices, increased income of urban local bodies etc", he said in a slide posted on Twitter. The Congress had announced to observe November 8 as a "black day". He said "they had big bags and garages full of notes which were banned due to the decision".

The committee said as part of protest against the move, which pulled the nation's economy back to 5 per cent, Congress party activists here will wear black ribbons on their shirts for the whole day on Tuesday and also, take out a funeral of demonetisation through major markets of the city. "Many of the infants died in their mothers' lap who stood in bank or ATM queues for hours". Many farmers committed suicide. He said, it will travel 20 thousand kilometres and reach 10 lakh people.

Launching a blistering attack on the BJP, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav said the move served the goal of "converting black money into white with greater ease". "What are they celebrating?" Are they celebrating the unemployment of crores of youths across the country?

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi accused Modi of "robbing" the country of its economic prowess and "damaging" India by converting people's anger due to joblessness into "communal hatred".

Azad was addressing a huge demonstration in central Delhi. BJP state government spokesperson and minister Madan Kaushik said, "the entire state has become a part of the foundation day celebration and planning a protest at this time was an insult to them". The Congress workers dressed in black shirts and trousers and led by the party's Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken raised slogans against the Modi government.

Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram also launched a scathing attack on the Centre and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, asking whether it was "ethical" to heap misery on millions of people.

The Congress party in Karnataka observed Wednesday as black day, marking the completion of one year of demonetisation in the country.

On November 8 2016, the old Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes were scrapped after Prime Minister Modi in an unexpected announcement during a surprise television address. "Don't expect anything from this BJP government, as this party has always been with industrialists", he said.

She also alleged that BJP workers were abusing Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. "He changed sides and formed a government with the BJP by breaking the Grand Alliance that was formed two years ago", Azad said. "So far, we have not arrested or detained anyone", the officer said. "Although Nitish Kumar broke away from the Grand Alliance, Sharadji remained firm on his principles", he added.
