One leader who came openly and full opposition of this bold step was, the chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said, "While I'm strongly against black money, corruption, deeply concerned about common people, small traders. How they will buy essentials tomorrow?"

She took it to Twitter to express his rage against the decision. she said, "This is a financial chaos and disaster let loose on the common people of India."

"The PM could not get back the promised black money from abroad from the rich so a drama to divert his failure," her next tweet followed.

"I want to know from PM how my poorest brothers sisters, who’ve received their week's hard earned wage in one 500 re note will buy ata,chal, tomo?" she asserted.

"Heartless and ill- conceived blow on the common people and the middle class in the fake name of anti-corruption," she wrote.

"Rs100 notes not available in banks. Without availability in market how will people,small farmrs,all employees,labourers purchase essentials," Mamata said.

"WITHDRAW THIS DRACONIAN DECISION," Banerjee tweeted and the post was further shared by Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
