Bengaluru: Should we hang Modi now, asks Dinesh Gundu Rao


From Our Special Correspondent

Protest causes traffic snarls

Bengaluru, Nov 8: With the ruling Congress party as well as CPI and AAP observing the first anniversary of Narendra Modi’s demonetisation against high value currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 as a "black day’’ and taking out protests in different parts of Bengaluru on Wednesday, traffic snarls were witnessed in many parts of the city, especially in the central business district, with huge pile up of vehicles.

Traffic bottlenecks were observed on the busy J.C. Road, K.G. Road, Nrupatunga Road, Mysore Bank Circle, Palace Road, Majestic, Anand Rao Circle, Sheshadri Road and other areas.

While the Congress workers took out a rally from Mahatma Gandhi Statue in Maurya Circle to Freedom Park, AAP led a rally from RBI premises on Nrupatunga Road to Kandaya Bhavan on K.G. Road and the CPI organised protests at Mysore Bank Circle, all of which were held simultaneously leading to traffic jams.

Wearing black bands tied across their foreheads as a sign of protest, Congress leaders from the state gathered at Freedom Park, in the city centre, holding placards and shouting slogans against Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for the note ban move.

"What good did the note ban do, except for bring the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) down," questioned Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President Dr G. Parameshwara at the Congress party rally.
"The GDP has dropped to 5.7 per cent (in the first quarter of 2017-18) from 7.9 per cent (during the same quarter) in 2016 as a result of demonetisation,’’ he said pointing out that former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh’s dire prediction had proved prophetic.

Several Youth Congress workers also joined the protests in the city, with a number of labourers and vegetable sellers taking part in it. Interestingly, some Congress leaders were seen pushing vegetable carts as part of their protest.
The Aam Aadmi Party leaders in the city also took to the streets in a silent protest, holding placards against demonetisation.

"I was made to beg for my own money," read one of the placards.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had termed demonetisation as a "thoughtless" act by the Prime Minister.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also took part in the protest along with the AICC general secretary in charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal, Dr Parameshwara, Home Minister B Ramalinga Reddy, KPCC working president Dinesh Gundu Rao among others marched from Maurya Circle to Freedom Park in the city.

"With 99% of the banned notes coming back, one cannot distinguish between what is black money and what is white. But today, Modi has issued advertisements comprising lies and false statistics," Gundu Rao said during an address.

"Modi had said if demonetisation failed, he should be hanged. Should we hang Modi now?,’’ he asked.

"The note ban was projected as a surgical strike against black money and terrorism. But it turned out to be a surgical strike against the common man," Venugopal said.

"Is Modi ready for a debate on this in Parliament? He knows the difficulty people faced and that's why he won't be ready for a debate," he added.

On the other hand, the opposition BJP is celebrating the day as Anti-Black Money Day.

    what a shame... I don't see that gaadiwala in the pic...it's Parmesh who is holding the slogans as if he is the gaadi vendor.... come on... don't put words in others mouth. If you had tough time, tell on yourself. I you put banner in that gaadi and showing it. Also, all these who are opposing, no wonder all the political leaders who got impacted very much due to Note Ban. We the loyal middle class people don't find it such a disaster to scribe. we had slight turbulence and we were ok to accept for the betterment of the nation. only folks who got impacted on their blackmoney are found scribbing...

    Not Modi, Corrupt bank officials who made this demonetization fail, supported to make black to white by illegally. If not, most of corrupt black money holders sure hanged themselves last year on this date and today lots of death anniversaries would have seen rather than celebrating black day.

    Note ban was done with good intentions, yeilded many positive returns.....
    Note ban has not adversely effected 95 % of population...those who are crying are only politicians, businessman with black money & babus who are govt employees, who have corrupt money..

    This might have affected the lower triangle of society,But at the higher side of the triangle,Things have changed.

    Money which was hidden inside bed n gunny bags came out,if not fully at least some major percentage of money got tracked.And new notes are really good to use.Its a big change.

    Some politicians are good at spreading the -ve things of a good initiative.This mentality of we Indians is really bad.Because of politicians that we presently have in Karnataka,Who are Rowdy's and Corrupt.Politicians please don't spoil innocent people mind by spreading unwanted things.This small thing indirectly affect this whole nation.

    But whatever Modi ji has done,It's a brave step he could have taken ,which No other government could have dreamt off.

    Look at karnataka,I was thinking Indira Canteen would be a big hit.But when I see some Indira Canteen here at Bangalore,There won't be any crowd outside,Which indirectly means wasting money,energy and wasting food.Which shouldn't be really done.And its like showing no value to food buy giving it at a throw away price.Every food that is grown has a value.Which our CM doesnt know.

    Modi ji has not wasted people's money.Instead he taught people how to use bank and transact money.
    Congress people if you have courage educate people,with no knowledge of using bank and other public services.Not simply commenting and wasting time by telling unwanted and irresponsible things,Be responsible citizens,you are the rulers.

    Am not a supporter of any party,But apply brain before voting.This time I wont vote in Karnataka because all the parties showed their real faces in last 7-8 years.Most of the big politicians showed how corrupt they are in last 4-5 years.

    My question is as Mr. Modi said banning note a year ago " the problem is only for a short period after that badalav ayega" many commoners and poor people struggled and struggled and some died also. Now the question is how many common and poor people benefited from this? what is the amount of black money caught?. Instead of this he should have demonetized 500 notes in slow stages giving one year period as the aim is reducing money in circulation also. you may not believe many people who had influence converted their money in lakhs with their hands in glove with some corrupt bank officers and made commoners to die in the street.

    Demonetization was a brave move. You need guts to take such action. Previous govt was busy on looting public money and busy with scams. This govt is at least taking some steps for the betterment of our people. Congress is very desperate. I dont think nobody can stop Modiji from becoming the PM for the next term too.
