Day 1. 11/17: Did you know ATM stands for, Aayega toh milega.

New Delhi: On the day 1 of the Parliament, as expected the entire opposition tried to come out all together to show they are against the modi government, but they are not in the favour of ban  for the  demonetization of the currency,  as this would give wrong signal to the general public.

cash crisis or ‘demonetisation’ was the favourable topic of the day last day of the winter session. Here are the stand on the all parties view on the day 1.

Trinamool congress: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, led a protest march to Rashtrapati Bhawan, She led the march along with four other political parties, was joined by several leaders of Shiv Sena, National Conference and Aam Aadmi Party in the protest march. The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah of National Conference also joined in the march that started from the Parliament House premises. There stand is the for the way of implementation of  demonetization.

After submitting a memorandum to President Pranab Mukherjee to bring immediate succour to the helpless citizens in banks queues across the country, Didi renamed ATM “Aayega toh milega”.

Congress & CPI-M: Anand Sharma, called the move to that of “Tuglaqi” where as CPI-M, Sitaram Yechury, accusingly referring to Prime Minister as “Modi Antoinette” demanded a joint parliamentary probe on the alleged selective leak of information “to friends of BJP”. The government, he said, dried up the pond in hope of catching the crocodile, little realizing that the crocodile escaped to the land, and now the life of the small fish was under threat, said Sitaram.

Shiv Sena; The ally Shiv Sena moved to the opposite camp,  BSP chief Mayawati tellingly commented on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s “glum look”

Janta Dal: it looked like BJP has some support from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s unqualified support from Patna. Well, the fortresses looked breached on both sides.

BJP: The best for the government was that, no one in the opposition, not even the Sena which walked in protest hand-in-hand with Didi, asked for a rollback of the decision, ostensibly taken to fight corruption and fake-currency-funded terrorism. The government braced itself up to the Opposition attack.

The PM, they said, had delivered on his promise to root out black money, made during 2014 elections, won in the haze of scam allegations against the then ruling dispensation, the Congress/UPA. But accusations of mishandling the currency reform persisted, in fact allegations flew thick and wild. The plight of the common man — as in the small trader, the farmer and the housewife

 It looks like all of the major political leaders were picking up their sources from social media to fight against the present government.  Some of the political parties just quote or prove every dia proof.

The demonetisation move perceived to be giving a support to ‘plastic’ economy and digital platforms, like PayTM, was portrayed by the Opposition as ‘elitist’  and ‘pro-business’. Friendlier parties,
AIADMK as well criticized the government for not taking enough measures to ease the pain of the common man faced with its decision to demonetize Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, and asked for a course correction.
