Bengaluru: Congress leaders took out a protest rally in Bengaluru on Wednesday to mark one year of Prime Minister Narendra Modi banning high denomination currency notes.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah took part in the protest along with the AICC general secretary in charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president G Parameshwara, Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy, KPCC working president Dinesh Gundu Rao among others marched from Maurya Circle to Freedom Park in the city.

“With 99 per cent of the banned notes coming back, one cannot distinguish between what is black money and what is white. But today, Modi has issued advertisements comprising lies and false statistics,” Gundu Rao said addressing the gathering.

He said Modi had said if demonetisation failed, he should be hanged. “Should we hang Modi now,” he asked. “The note ban was projected as a surgical strike against black money and terrorism. But it turned out to be a surgical strike against the common man,” Venugopal said. “Is Modi ready for a debate on this in Parliament? He knows the difficulty people faced and that’s why he won’t be ready for a debate,” he added.

The Congress party has launched nationwide protests to mark November 8 as ‘Black Day’ condemning the demonetisation. On the other hand, the BJP is celebrating today as Anti-Black Money Day.
