New Delhi: People are queueing outside banks and ATMs for a better India, BJP on Tuesday said, terming it as the “most profound statement” to have ever come from them, and decried alleged “malicious” attempts by those opposing demonetisation to provoke violence and chaos.

Hailing demonetisation as a national project of cleansing the system that will usher in behavioural and attitudinal changes encouraging honesty, particularly in political life, BJP Parliamentary party passed a resolution commending Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “historic, revolutionary, daring and pro-poor” decision in national interest.

Condemning “malicious” efforts of rival parties, the resolution alleged that they are desperate to provoke violence and chaos as they have been “rattled” by people’s wide support to the decision and urged the Prime Minister to call for other effective measures to clean up the system.

They are bent upon disrupting the proceedings of Parliament on one pretext or the other, it alleged, targeting the opposition. At this crucial juncture, it said, political parties have to choose whether they would stand by the government and the people or protect the interests of black money hoarders.

“People are queueing for a better India. This in our view is the most profound statement to ever come from the people of our country,” the resolution proposed by home minister Rajnath Singh and seconded by Information and broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said.

“The BJP Parliamentary Party congratulates the Prime Minister for his historic, daring and pro-poor decision in the interest of the nation. It urges the Prime Minister and the government to call for other effective measures to clean up the entire system,” it said.

The BJP Parliamentary Party is “supremely confident” that this bold initiative will achieve the intended objectives of cutting off financial support to terrorist and extremist organisations and address the problem of counterfeit currency, the resolution said.
