Govt’s demonetisation good idea but implementation badly planned: Music composer Vishal Dadlani

Mumbai: In the wake of Centre’s move to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and subsequent problems faced by public, Bollywood music composer Vishal Dadlani has criticised the government for poorly implementing the policy.

In a series of tweets, the 43-year-old musician has lashed out at the BJP led-government, saying the demonetisation plan is a “joke.”

“If it’s true that 2,00,000 ATMs will have to be recalibrated before they can dispense the new currency, this demonetisation “plan” is a JOKE (sic),” he wrote.

Replying to a Twitter user, Dadlani posted, “That’s what nobody understands. I was one of the first to speak in support of Demonetisation. But the planning is an utter disaster!”

He further added, “Most of them can’t even buy train tickets right now. No cash, and if they do have new 2000 rupee notes, no change!”
