Mamata Banerjee to join Opposition leaders to meet President over demonetisation woes

 Trinamool Chairperson and Bengal Chief Minister said Mamata Banerjee said she spoke to the President of India on the issue of demonetisation and he has kindly consented to meet her and leaders of other Opposition parties on November 16 or 17.

Mamata Banerjee gave a call for a “joint movement” by Opposition parties against the Centre to give people some respite from the ongoing “financial anarchy” that has been caused due to the decision to demonetise Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes.

She later tweeted: “The Hon President was kind enough to take my call now. I briefed him about how common people are suffering because of demonetization. I thank him for agreeing to meet reps of political parties on Nov 16 or 17 where we will brief him in detail on the grim situation.”

She also spoke to leaders of various parties and requested them to accompany her to meet the President.

In another tweet Mamata Banerjee stated: “This is not an ego battle. I humbly appeal again to the Govt at the Centre. Save the common people from more suffering,and the country from financial catastrophe, by withdrawing this hasty decision. 1st pl put a proper action plan in place.Breathing space for people. Today I spoke with several political leaders regarding a joint movement and to meet Rashtrapati Ji together. Let us all fight this together to give relief to common citizens, the poor and stop this financial anarchy.”
