Kolkata, Nov 21: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday took potshots at the BJP-led Centre over frequently changing the guidlines on the demonetisation issue, saying that it shows that the govenment is confused.

"Centre has 'rolled back' about 15 decisions since announcement on 8 Nov. This means they are confused," she told the media here.

Mamata further trained guns at Nitish Kumar, who had lent support to demonetisation, and said the Bihar Chief Minister might have had some "political compulsions".

She vowed to go to the National Capital tomorrow and carry out with her protest against demonetisation along with her supporters.

In a veiled attack on Mamata, Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier said political leaders behind multi-crore chit fund scams are attacking him as they have been hit hard by demonetisation.

Banerjee, who led a march led a march to the Rashtrapati Bhavan last week to submit memorandum on demonetisation, warned the Centre of intense protests if the problems being faced by people are not resolved in three days' time.

Meanwhile, Modi governments currency demonetisation move has been gaining support from the citizens.

According to the 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.
