Pradip Bhandari, the CEO and Founder of Jan Ki Baat, interviewed Delhites about the PMs decision of demonetization. The people backed Narendra Modis efforts, claiming demonetization as the perfect solution for deletion of the black economy. Gradually, success of such a scheme would be visible, which would guarantee a stable future for India.
Demonetization came as a surprise to many when PM Modi declared his, and his governments intention to clean the nation, on 8th November 2016. Getting rid of black money formed major chunk of Modi and BJPs 2014 manifesto. Withdrawal of the legal tender of ?1000 and ?500 met with staunch resistance by some groups and was questioned by many. Though demonization was lauded for its noble goal, it was simultaneously critiqued for the loopholes it contained.
#JanJanKiBaat hopes to capture the pulse of the common man and subsequently, understand the direction in which public perception is heading, regarding demonetization.
