CPI-M charges PM with ignoring people’s sufferings

New Delhi, Dec 31 (IANS) The CPI-M on Saturday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move as a “disastrous implementation”, and said he is “unrepentant and ignorant on people’s sufferings”.

Communist Party of India-Marxist Politbureau member Mohammad Salim said that Modi’s postdemonetisation address to nation was disappointed as there was no substance in his speech,and he even did not apologise for the over 100 deaths due to his move to scrap 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.

“People sacrificed, waited and disappointed. No substance in speech, no apologies for 100 deaths, no information on what all this yielded,” Salim tweeted.

“All bravado, all showbiz, no responsible reflection on disastrous implementation. PM is unrepentant and ignorant on people’s sufferings,” he said in another tweet.
