He has also published an article in Navhind Times, a Goan daily, which claimed that Sardesai pointed out that sixty per cent of the country’ population has been troubled by demonetisation.
However, in this video it is visible how people reacted to him when he tried to gauge people’s views on the “inconvenience” factor.

A nationwide survey conducted by C-Voter has suggested that the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes is being seen positively by a large part of the population cutting across the lines of age, income levels and area of residence.
