According to reports, party chief M Karunanidhi earlier said 'opposition leaders' had decided to hold countrywide protests against the ruling BJP on the issue and that DMK will protest outside central government offices in Tamil Nadu.

He urged good participation by party workers and asked them to voice support against this "anti-people" move of the Centre.

DMK on Friday backed former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his criticism on the way the BJP government has implemented demonetisation and charged Prime Minister Narendra Modi with ignoring the people by not responding to Singh's queries on the matter.

DMK Treasurer and Tamil Nadu Opposition Leader M K Stalin had said, "Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh put it beautifully when he called it a monumental management failure."
