Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh termed in the Rajya Sabha on Thursday the demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes an “organised loot and legalized plunder.”
And that blunder has not only impacted common people but also man of honor and position like Mr. LK Advani. Advani ji is the eternal wait list candidate for the post of PM ever since BJP won the elections in 1999.
He was many times projected as the Party’s face for the PM post but always lost to someone or the other, most recent being Narendra Modi. But what happened yesterday was shocking.
Advani ji stood in a ATM queue thinking that people there are waiting for their chance to become PM. It was only when Advaniji reached the ATM machine, that he realised the queue was for withdrawing money.
Demonetization has not only hit the common man hard but even intellectual leaders like Advaniji are falling prey to Modiji’s fight against black money
The BJP vs Congress debate is taking some ugly turn. After the recent ‘Khoon ki dalali’ comment by the Gandhi Scion, BJP has been targeting the Congress at every possible opportunity. Congress is also not far behind in this tussle for cheap publicity.
Recently Kohli score his first 200 on Indian soil. PM Modi was quick to praise him on twitter which he often does. This dint go well with the Congress leadership. They thought that BJP government is taking the credit for Kohli’s 200.
Kail Sibbal was very quick in calling a press conference and pointing out that even the great Sachin Tendulkar scored a century during the time of UPA government but Manmohan Singh never wished him.
Mannohan Singh dint take political advantage of the situation. Congress has urged Modi to keep quiet for 2 years and not praise anyone otherwise congress will again suffer in 2019, just like they did in 2014.
PM Modi was quick to respond and twitted that in the future he will not wish any cricketers for that matter any sportsperson. Congress has welcomed this gesture, but it has to be seen if it benefits them in the long run.
