A transporter in Darbhanga is offering free bus service from the city to Patna. The reason? He simply wants to help the people following the demonetisation drive launched by the Centre.
Long queues at the banks have become a common sight since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the scrapping of currency notes of denomination of Rs.500 and Rs.1000.
Since the announcement was sudden, banks were unprepared to meet with the rush of deposits, withdrawals and exchanges. But the government is working on a war footing to ensure that new currencies of Rs.500 and Rs.2000 reach the banks to ensure cash flow.
Meanwhile, those availing of this free service are, expectedly, all praise of the transporter. And they also think that the PM’s move will get rid of black money from the market.
