Mangaluru, Jan 10, 2017: Women Congress workers in Mangaluru and Udupi, staged a demonstration against demonetisation by carrying a spoon and plate in Mangaluru on Jan 9, Monday.
Addressing the protesters, DK district Women Congress president Shalet Pinto said women are the maximum sufferers and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is still ignorant about it. The move of the Union government to scrap high denomination currency notes has snatched the money of common people. All the sections of society have been affected by it, she claimed.
Through this protest, efforts are being made to wake up the BJP government at the Centre from deep slumber about the problems being faced by women and common man due to demonetisation. The move has benefited only a few rich people. It has not helped in curbing black money, she said.
