Not against demonetisation but its implementation: Mayawati

New Delhi, Nov 24 (IANS) Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Thursday said that her party was not against the Centre’s demonetisation of high-value currency notes but was opposed to the way it was implemented.

“We are not against the demonetisation move at all, but the manner in which it was implemented that affected poor people,” she said in the Rajya Sabha.

Mayawati also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to remain present for the debate before the house was adjourned for lunch.
