Demonetisation far-sighted and genuine, but its implementation has been botched up
PM Narendra Modi is right when he says that he left his home, family and everything for the country. Before being PM he was CM of Gujarat for fifteen years but his personal belongings can still be counted on fingers.

His mother and brother live in a very modest accommodation. What more proof is needed that he is not a man after wealth and KURSI (chair)? Look at other Indian netas and their castles which they call as their home. Look at their lifestyles.

Why to wonder if he enjoys maximum popularity in the country. When he speaks people listen. By prohibiting the use of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes with effect 8 Nov, he has genuinely hit at the core of the Black Money economy in the country.

In doing so, he has taken a very big political risk as this measure could rebound on him also. But then while opposition political parties are ranting against him days in and out in the name of inconvenience to aam aadmi the actual aam aadmi is happy. The current day India is not the old India. Today, India is the youngest country in the world with 800 million populations below 35 years of age. This population has 72% education. So, the netas will not be able to fool them as they use to do earlier.

Congress, BSP, SP, CPM, Trinamool Cong, Aam Aadmi Party; group of netas comprising Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Yadav, Mamta Banerjee, Prakash Karat, Yechury, Kejriwal are ranting against the government's demonetisation policy for the sake of aam aadmi.

However, the truth is that all of them have been badly hit because their bulk of black money has been made redundant. One tall party of UP reportedly has given Rs 1.5 corers to each of its candidate to whom it has given ticket to fight UP election to get back the new notes or lose the candidacy.

Now these people have no option but to use large number of people to deposit Rs 2 lakh each and then get back with new notes as permitted till 30 Dec. The Indian public, despite hardship, is solidly behind this move of PM Modi. So, why are these netas unhappy?

In the last Parliament discussion these very netas were mocking Modi that where is the Black Money and what action against black money hoarders. So, why are they shedding crocodile tears now?

There is no doubt that this action by PM Modi is farsighted and genuine. If successful, it will make India clean for long time to come. However, same cannot be said about his all powerful finance minster Mr Jaitley and the team of Babus responsible to implement this scheme.

Mr Jaitley and the Babus have botched up a very good scheme. They should have worked overnight and should have been fully prepared in its smooth implementation. Why so many amendments and delays now? The whole scheme and the likely problems should have been discussed at length. Why this was not done? Modi must hold people accountable.

What is even more surprising is that BJP has largest membership in the country. In addition, they have backing of very large number of RSS kar sevaks. They all by this time should have fanned out to the remotest villages of the country to help farmers and rural people, assuring them that they are not losers but gainers. This would have earned a great popular feeling for the BJP and RSS in the country.
