Bhubaneswar: BJP President Amit Shah on Friday lashed out at the opposition parties for criticizing the government’s demonetisation move.
“Only those have black money, they are feeling the pain after the demonetization move,” said Shah addressing the ‘Jan Jagran Maha Samavesh’ in Bhubaneswar.
Shah said demonetization has hit hard the opposition parties including Congress, SP, BSP, AAP, Mamata and Mulayam driving them to oppose the move.
“Till November 7, they were asking what has Modi done about black money. Now they ask Why have you done this for black money?” said Shah.
Speaking of border tension along LoC, he said the Indian army is giving a befitting reply to the Pakistani troops for cease-fire violations.
He also criticized the Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government in Odisha.
“Naveen (Patnaik) ji aapne 17 years mei kya kiya? Iska hisaab poochne mai aaya hun (Naveen Patnaik ji, what have you done in the past 17 years? I have come to seek answers here),” asked the BJP president.
He slammed the Odisha government for not providing adequate health facilities to the poor. “Odisha ki sarkar agar gareebon ko health facilities tak uplabdh nahi kara sakti toh aisi sarkar ko satta mei rehne ka adhikar nahi hai (If the Odisha government can’t provide adequate health facilities to the poor, then it has not reason to stay in power).
