Stalin to lead Demon Black day protests

Stalin to lead Demon Black day protests”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi met DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi on "humanitarian" ground and there was no politics involved in the meeting between two leaders, the Dravidian party said.

Chennai: DMK on Tuesday said its Working President MK Stalin will lead the protest by Congress and its allies against the NDA government's demonetisation on its first anniversary in Tamil Nadu from Madurai.

"Therefore this is humanitarian, and beyond politics", he said, adding, any attempts to create "confusion" using the meeting between the two leaders will not succeed.

Coming back to demonetisation move, Stalin said that people from all walks of life more particularly small and medium traders and labourers were affected by this policy.

"When the reporters asked me whether the meeting had any political importance, I told them clearly that Modi did not come for politics, we are also not ready to use him anytime for politics", he explained to put to rest all the speculation of the political realignment.

The DMK, an ally of the Congress, has earlier said it would observe November 8, the first anniversary of demonetisation, as "Black Day" and stage demonstrations in all district headquarters of Tamil Nadu. The Modi government turned a deaf ear when Opposition parties raised voice against it, but today BJP former finance minister Yashwant Sinha and its MP Subramanian Swamy and the former Reserve Bank Governor Raghuram Rajan also express concern on note ban, he said. The note ban decision was "unexpected", he said.

DMK men wore black shirts, while women supporters, besides leaders like Kanimozhi, were dressed in black sarees.

Cancellation of the protest in eight districts citing rain triggered speculation of the principal opposition party going soft on BJP.
