5:23 pm 24 Nov, 2016


India’s former Prime Minster Manmohan Singh on November 24 finally broke his silence on government’s move to demonetize of old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes and expressed his displeasure at the way it has been handled

 

Calling the whole process a ‘monumental mismanagement,’ Singh said that the decision was an overnight ‘imposition’ by the government.

 

He further added that though people say that it is just a short-term trouble, there was no long-term guarantee for it .

 

He then went on to point towards the deaths that have taken place due to demonetization and said that for any poor person 50 days with no money is too much.

He then questioned PM Modi as to why people were not being allowed to withdraw their own money.

Singh then pointed out how the current government’s move will hurt India in the long run and added that people were justified in criticising the government and RBI for it.

 

 

 


Here is what he said,

His view though didn’t go down well with many, and they soon took to twitter to slam the former PM.

Before serving as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 and 2014, Singh had held many important posts in the finance industry.

He had also held the position of India’s Finance Minister between 1991 and 1996 and RBI Governor from 1982 till 1985.
