This is not achche din

By Anand Aravamudhan

Despite opinion in the form of write-ups and insights from experienced economists and thinkers, how can the Prime Minister Modi continue to claim that demonetization as a financial strategy has more supporters than dissenters? In a democracy, was he not bound to hear a section of opinion before he took such a decision? The 50-day timeline is an eyewash. One wonders if a new timeline is being scripted as part of the plot. The callousness displayed by the government towards the sufferings of the poor, daily wage earners and the illiterate smacks of arrogance while bordering on hostility towards “literate dissenters.” This is not Achche din.
