From Mann Ki Baat to Jan Ki Baat on demonetization: JanJanKiBaat17

Pradip Bhandari, the CEO and Founder of Jan Ki Baat spoke to the supporters of the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who had been waiting outside Kejriwal’s office for 3 hours. The workers were told that Kejriwal would arrive at 10 am but even at 2 pm there was no sign of the Delhi CM in sight. His supporters, however, were willing to wait for as long as required. One amongst them even compared the waiting-in for Kejriwal with the long queues at ATMs and Banks, a common view post-demonetization in India, saying he could wait for hours for Kejriwal, which was better than standing in queues to withdraw money.

8th November 2016 proved itself to be a surprise for the whole of India, with PM Narendra Modi announcing his government’s issuance of a ban on two of the highest denomination Notes. The move, designed to delete the existence of black money and black economy, couldn’t have been discussed as secrecy and confidentiality were required. The decision, for it hopes to fulfil, has also received criticism from various segments of the society.

#JanJanKiBaat hopes to understand the direction in which demonetization, as its perceived by the public, is heading towards.
