Mumbai, Nov 13 (PTI) In the wake of inconveinience faced by the people due to Centre's move to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, Bollywood music composer Vishal Dadlani has criticised the government for poorly implementing the policy.
In a series of tweets, the 43-year-old musician has lashed out at the BJP led-government, saying the demonetisation plan is a "joke."
"If it's true that 2,00,000 ATMs will have to be recalibrated before they can dispense the new currency, this demonetisation "plan" is a JOKE (sic)," he wrote.
Replying to a Twitter user, Dadlani posted, "That's what nobody understands. I was one of the first to speak in support of Demonetisation. But the planning is an utter disaster!"
He further added, "Most of them can't even buy train tickets right now. No cash, and if they do have new 2000 rupee notes, no change!"
The fact that good people are willing to line up peacefully, for hours, gives me hope! The fact that they have to, is just BAD planning! https://t.co/nabCR8Y0Bz— VISHAL DADLANI (@VishalDadlani) 13 November 2016
When asked by a Twitter user as to why he was promoting Kejriwal's agenda, Dadlani said he was not part of any political party.
I've quit all parties and politics. But I'm still a citizen, and I have the right to an opinion. Especially when I see madness around me. https://t.co/nYOrVcqTuk— VISHAL DADLANI (@VishalDadlani) 12 November 2016
