Delhi BJP protests against Kejriwal

New Delhi, Nov 22 (IANS) BJP workers on Tuesday staged a protest against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for demanding roll back of the demonetisation move and asked whether he supports “terrorism and the use of black money in elections”.

Hundreds of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers wore masks of Kejriwal and walked from the Civil Lines metro station to his residence and raised slogans against him.

“Does Kejriwal want to use the black money in the Punjab elections, which has become of no use after demonetisation?” BJP workers protesting outside the Chief Minister’s residence told reporters.

“Does he want to fund terrorists in the country?” another protestor asked.

Some BJP workers also wore the masks of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who too has criticised the demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Kejriwal on November 17 had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to roll back the demonetisation decision, while addressing a rally at Azadpur Mandi with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The union government has spiked 500 and 1,000 rupee notes from November 8 midnight to tackle black money and corruption, leading to massive queues before banks and ATMs across the country to withdraw cash, or deposit and exchange the spiked notes.
