New Delhi: Lauding the demonetisation of high denomination notes, yoga teacher Baba Ramdev on Sunday said the Narendra Modi government has dealt a severe blow to corruption, black money and terrorism and urged people to cooperate with the centre in this endeavour to clean up the system.
“By demonetising Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 denomination notes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji has dealt a severe blow to corruption, black money, terrorism and fake currency business. All these are the economic challenges that the country is facing,” Ramdev said on the sidelines of International Coronary Congress.
In response to a query about people facing difficulties in procuring Rs. 100 notes, Baba Ramdev said some people are blaming the government as they are facing difficulties because of this sudden move.
“But instead of blaming, I urge people to cooperate with the government in this endeavour to clean up the system. When there is a war, soldiers face many harships and starve for weeks. Can’t we, for welfare of the nation, endure this hardship for a few days?” the yoga teacher asked.
“For the first time after Independence, we have a political leader who has a strong political will and took such a bold decision despite opposition by the land mafia, political mafia and international mafia,” he added.
