New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the efforts of the Indians in carrying out the demonetization process in a ‘patient and orderly manner’ on Thursday.
PM Modi expressed his happiness over the smooth conduct of the demonetization process. He assured in his social media, that is, his facebook handle that its government is making all efforts to create a ‘corruption free’ India.
PM Modi’s facebook status is given below:
“So happy to learn that citizens are expressing their gratitude to bankers & getting notes exchanged in a very patient & orderly manner. It is also heartening to learn that people are actively volunteering to help senior citizens withdraw money & exchange their currency.
Such warmth, enthusiasm & the patience to bear limited inconvenience for a greater good is indeed very heartening. I assure you the Govt is unwavering in its effort to create an India that is corruption free & fruits of development touch every citizen.”
The country went into a shock after PM Modi announced on November 8 that the 500 and 1000 rupee note would stand abolished from midnight. Panic among commoners was noticeable. The country saw serpentine-like queues outside banks from Thursday morning in an effort to exchange their old scrapped notes with the new 500 and 2000 rupee notes.
