Patna: Social activist Medha Patkar on Saturday urged Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar to rethink over his support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move, reiterating it was actually monetisation of the country’s least developed communities to help the market and corporates.

“Nitish Kumar should rethink or reconsider his stand to support demonetisation,” Patkar, National Alliance of People’s Movements (NAPM) leader, told media at its 11th biennial National Convention here.

She said Nitish Kumar, who is president of the Janata Dal-United, should not have supported demonetisation. “This demonetisation has nothing to do with black money. People who had black money had invested in properties,” she said, adding that black money will not end through the government’s so-called demonetisation move.

She said this “monetisation” of least developed communities across the country by the government led by Modi to help markets and corporates is a dangerous trend for the people and the country. Patkar said also said that the attack on democratic institutions have increased multifold since the Modi government came to power. “Modi government has been handing over natural resources to land to corporates by changing laws,” she alleged.
