Demonetization: Neither Celebration, nor Black Day for BJD

Bhubaneswar: The BJD on Monday announced to skip the observances of the first anniversary of demonetization on November 8 by the BJP and Congress.

The state ruling party said that it will neither join Congress to observe the note ban anniversary as 'black day' nor BJP to observe the day as 'anti-black money' day.

'BJD will not support the observances of first anniversary of demonetization on November 8 by both Congress and BJP,' said BJD spokesperson and Rajyasabha MP Pratap Deb while addressing a press conference here on Monday.

The BJD leader further said that it is very unfortunate that BJP has decided to celebrate November 8, as 'anti-black money' day while 55 people had died due to demonetization.

Notably, the Opposition Congress has decided to observe the day as 'black day' while BJP has announced to observe the day as 'anti-black money' day.
