It seems that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has no sense of public responsibility and its decisions are taken mindlessly without considering the implications they have on the people. The decision to withdraw the 2000-rupee notes shows the BJP’s lack of responsibility towards the public, said Abdul Majeed Faizy, national general secretary of Social Democratic Party of India.

In his press statement, the SDPI leader said that people were still reeling under the negative impact of the November 2016 sudden demonetization decision when this new announcement has rubbed salt into their wound. One after the other the BJP has failed the nation with its anti-public decisions.

Earlier people stood in long queues in the bone-chilling winter to withdraw Rs 200 and Rs 100 denomination banknotes for their daily needs while banks and ATMs ran out of cash for months, now they have to stand in line in the sweltering summer to deposit their 2000 rupee notes. This is the repeat of the demonetization chaos that will be too painful for the people, Faizy said, adding that the BJP’s sensor-chips, attached to the country’s highest denomination 2000-rupee notes that were so widely sold to the media, failed to trace the black money and are now back to where they were issued from.
