Congress legislators take out protest march in Nagpur against demonetisation
Nagpur, Dec 8: Congress legislators in Maharashtra, led by former Chief Ministers Prithviraj Chavan and Narayan Rane, took out a protest march at Vidhan Bhawan here over the issue of demonetisation.
During the morcha taken out between Vidan Bhawan's main gate and its main entrance, the legislators of the opposition party were seen carrying placards, which denounced the demonetisation decision.
The placards read that the decision to scrap old currency notes taken by the Narendra Modi government has caused harassment to the commoners, poor, tribals and farmers.
During the march, which lasted for about 20 minutes, the Congress MLAs and MLCs, were seen raising slogans on the notes ban issue.
Demonetisation issue had dominated the debate in the state Assembly yesterday with the Congress-NCP slamming the Centre over the move, saying it has caused severe hardship to people and harmed the rural economy.
