Watch: Kejriwal exposes hidden agenda behind Demonitization of Rupees 500, 1000

NEW DELHI: BJP and its “friends” were informed about the demonetisation of high value currency “a week before” the move was effected, especially keeping the upcoming UP polls in mind, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today alleged.

Kejriwal questioned the logic behind the introduction of Rs 2000 notes saying it will fan corruption and the black money economy instead of containing it and that demonetisation has hit the common men hard.

The AAP chief, in a video message, said a racket of commissions was thriving across the country. The fault lies in their (government’s) intentions, Kejriwal said.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal also took pot shots at an advertisement of Mobile payments firm ‘Paytm’ that featured Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image, saying the company was the biggest beneficiary of the move.
