New Delhi, Nov 29: The cadres of Hindu right-wing groups--Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal--are all set to join Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mission to turn India into a cashless or lesscash economy.
In his November 27 Mann Ki Baat address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked youngsters of the country to join his campaign of turning Indian economy into a "cashless"one.
In the wake of the demonetisation of high-value currency notes, the country is facing severe cash crunch.
Both the VHP and Bajrang Dal on Monday expressed support to the Centre's demonetisation policy and said they are going to train their cadres in spreading awareness about "a cashless economy".
"The VHP and Bajrang Dal have decided to take necessary steps to train its cadres on this issue. After getting trained, the Bajrang Dal volunteers will also arrange training for common people.
"It is also visible that the problems faced by the public due to sudden demonetisation are also being sorted out by the government quickly. The cashless transactions will definitely prove to be an important tool to ease the people's burden and fight against black money," said VHP's International Joint secretary general Surendra Jain.
Speaking in his monthly radio broadcast "Mann Ki Baat" on Sunday, Modi has said: "Take pledge to be a part of a cashless society from today. Not only this, you will also have to take time to educate at least 10 families everyday. Educate them on how to download apps, how to spend money using mobile phones, how to make payments. How to do business."
