NDA government’s demonetisation drive (with the objective to fight black money, corruption and terror funding) completed two years on November 8, 2018. Recently, while rallying in Shahdol, Madhya Pradesh, for the upcoming assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the note ban has brought back the black money in the banks. At the same time, a few hours earlier, Congress president Rahul Gandhi termed BJP’s demonetization move as the biggest scandal in the history of the country.

Demonetisation saw overnight scrapping of the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes in November 2016, which was not taken well by the public. The move by the BJP government still remains to be a hot topic and often sees leaders from the ruling party and the opposition sparring over the same.

While PM Modi refrained himself from making any statement over the topic on its anniversary, he however mentioned in the rally that he had already told the public that in the beginning people will have some problem.

He also said that his government’s fight against corruption would go on and those who had plundered public money “will have to return what they looted”. A news website shared the statement by the prime minister on Twitter.
