Chennai: The DMK on Sunday urged its cadres to make the human chain on November 24 protesting against the Centre’s “haste” in implementing the demonetisation and the state government for “not taking any action” in addressing people’s grievances, a success.

In a statement here, DMK Treasurer M. K. Stalin said that the demonetisation scheme has affected the common man. “Soon after the announcement of the withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, people were facing a lot of hardships. It is painful to see that low and middle-income groups, small traders, farmers, labourers are standing in queues at banks and ATMs to exchange notes and withdraw money for long hours,” he said.

 

Accusing the AIADMK-ruled state government for not taking steps to mitigate the problems of the public, Mr Stalin pointed that Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and his cabinet colleagues had staged a dharna in front of the RBI office in Thiruvananthapuram recently protesting against the Centre’s move to “destroy” the cooperative sector under the cover of demonetisation process.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandra Babu Naidu had also requested the RBI to deposit Rs 10,000 crore in banks for financial transactions, Stalin said and asked whether there was a government in Tamil Nadu that was witnessing the difficulties faced by the people. The AIADMK MPs have not also discussed the issue in the Parliament, he alleged.
