The united opposition in India has called for a nationwide strike (Bharat Bandh) on November 28, 2016 to protest against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move.
The opposition parties will protest against the hardship caused among the rural population and to the common man due to demonetisation.
Opposing the PM Modi’s bold move, leaders from Congress, Trinamool Congress and Bahujan Samaj Party protested outside the Parliament. The Member of Parliaments gathered before the statue of Mahatma Gandhi and marched holding their hands to form a chain.
Earlier too, the Parliament’s winter sessions saw opposition parties attacking the Modi government alleging poor implementation of demonetization move.
Several political parties, including Congress, TMC, JD-U, CPM, CPI, NCP, BSP, RJD, among others have united to oppose the note ban since day one of its implementation.
However, a whopping 80-86% of Indian population support PM Modi’s move to combat black money, said a survey by C-Voter.
