Jan Ki Baat spoke to a citizen about the impact demonetization had created on the common publics routine. He remarked that demonetization was a bold move fielded by the BJP government and though it has high risks and a ton of logistic challenges, the PMs entrepreneurial spirit can definitely tackle these issues.
The PM of India, Narendra Modi, announced on the 8th of November, his governments decision to demonetize the higher-denomination currency. The old ?500 and ?1000 notes were banned throughout India from morning of 9th November, with the citizens being allowed to either deposit their old notes in banks or get them exchanged, until the new ?500 and ?2000 notes come out. Such a move intended to renew the economic market place and rid the country of the black money it had accumulated till date.
#JanJanKiBaat takes into account the variety of reactions to demonetization, to understand the public mood.
