New Delhi, Nov 22: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the citizens to give their opinion on the government's decision to demonetise Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes on the NM app (Narendra Modi APP).

Demonetisation of higher value notes has become a contentious issue with the opposition parties trying to corner the BJP-led government over it in the Parliament.

Since the demonetisation announcement on Nov 8, people have been waiting for hours in long queues at banks, mostly to exchange the banned notes for new currency.

Meanwhile, Modi government's currency demonetisation move has been gaining support from the citizens.

According to a survey by LocalCircles - a citizen engagement platform - 79 per cent of those surveyed citizens fully supported the demonetisation programme while only 3 percent were against it.

Prime Minister Modi, had on November 8, announced that all Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 rupee notes would cease to be valid in all forms of transactions in a bid to tackle hoarding of black money, corruption and terror financing.
