West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee carried out a rally on Wednesday against PM Narendra Modi’s demonetization move.
Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief said, “A super-emergency has been enforced in the country by demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes.”
"Modi has snatched the freedom of people to live. By demonetisation, he has snatched rights of roti (food), kapda (cloth) and makaan (house) from the people," she said, addressing a rally at Gardanibagh area of Patna.
Members of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) including party senior vice-president Raghuvansh Prasad Singh and RJD Bihar unit President Ram Chandra Purve also joined her during the rally.
"Modi has badly hit the age-old savings by women in their house. Women used to save some money for emergency purpose but Modi has ended it by demonetisation. It is an insult to women power also," she said.
On Tuesday, Mamata Banerjee visited RJD Chief Lalu Prasad and met with his wife and former Chief Minister Rabri Devi.
"Mamta was extended support by Lalu Prasad after she sought endorsement for her protest against Modi's decision," senior party leader Bhola Yadav said.
