A Congress leader Friday termed the Shiv Sena's comments a day earlier on demonetisation as "fairly accurate" but also asked the latter if it would continue to be a part of the BJP-led governments at the Centre and Maharashtra. Shiv Sena spokesperson Manisha Kayande had Thursday slammed the note ban decision of the Centre and had claimed that "the situation after two years has become so bad that people are waiting to punish the PM".
On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a ban on Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 denomination bank notes with immediate effect.
"Interesting...Statement & observation by a long-term ally of #BJP over #DemonetisationDisaster is fairly accurate...Now, whether .#ShivSena will sail the same boat to be downed in #Maharashtra or chart a different course is yet to be seen... Time will tell!" All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary in charge of Maharashtra Ashish Dua tweeted Friday.
The Sena spokesperson Thursday had also claimed the note ban exercise was a "complete failure" as none of its objectives was achieved. "While the (Union) Finance Minister says a number of people have been brought under the tax net, he has failed to explain the rationale behind it (demonetisation) as several lakh people lost jobs," Kayande had said Thursday.
