Kolkata: The first anniversary of the announcement of demonetisation, the Trinamool Congress Government would be organising ‘Black Day’ or ‘Kaala Dibas’ through a series of protest marches from 2 to 3 pm in Kolkata as well as in all the districts.
In Kolkata, the marches would take place in Sealdah, Dharmatala, Hazra, Jadavpur, Behala, Garia and other places. Also, till December 15, Trinamool will organise mass-contact programmes across the state.
Demonetisation has been a disaster for the country. Lakhs of people, more in the informal sector, lost their jobs, and tragically, more than 120 people were killed while standing in queues outside banks, trying to exchange demonetized currency or withdraw money in the newly-introduced currency.
