Demonetisation woes: Opposition to hold protests across India, BJP claims no one will support all-India bandh

New Delhi: The Opposition parties have announced a 'nationwide bandh' to protest against the Centre's currency ban which they thought is a dictatorial move of the Narendra Modi government.

It is to be noticed that the first week of the winter session in Parliament saw opposition parties stand as a united front, but they appear divided on how they will protest against the move on Monday.

Demonstrations, bandhs, rail roko, rallies, public meetings and marches are some of the plans of the opposition parties for a nationwide protest against the NDA government .

The opposition continuously protesting against the decision of the government to demonetise high-value currency notes.

Meanwhile, the BJP downplayed the opposition’s call for an all-India shutdown over demonetisation. They said that it is sure the nation will not support them.

On asking, BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav said that the opposition can do whatever they want to do as people of the country will not going to support the endeavour of ‘Kala Dhan Bandh’.

He said, 'Let them decide what they want to do. The country wants black money and corruption to be 'bandh'.

However, while addressing the Parivartan Rally in Kushinagar in eastern UP, the PM Modi described demonetisation as a cure to the 70-year-old disease of corruption.

Modi slammed the opposition parties for its all-India bandh call over demonetisation. He said instead of the band the country needed an end to evils like corruption and black money.

Interestingly, it is seen that even before the start of the nationwide protest by the opposition, the lack of unity among the parties came to light.

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar-led Janata Dal (United) or JD(U) has decided not to take part in the nationwide protest against the government
