Trinamool Congress has launched all-India protests today. According to the party, these protests are against the political vendetta of the Indian government and the arbitrary decision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to demonetize high-value notes.

The country-wide protests – under the banner Modi Hatao Desh Bachao or (dethrone Modi, save the country) – of the party begin today (January 9) and will continue for three days.

Party MLAs and senior leaders will demonstrate outside Reserve Bank of India (RBI), CGO Complex at Salt Lake, Kolkata.

Meanwhile, the Finance Minister of India Arun Jaitley said Sunday that his government’s decision to demonetize high denominational currency notes has not caused any social unrest in the country, as it is being projected by the opposition parties.

Jaitley claimed that all opinion polls conducted by independent media organizations have shown that an overwhelmingly large percentage of people have supported the government’s decision.

Trinamool Congress leader and Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has been carrying out her fight against demonetization that – according to the party – has claimed more than 111 lives and led to a huge loss for the entire country. Senior leaders of the party and MLAs will agitate in front of RBI.

The demonstrations are supposed to take place from 9 am to 6 pm on all the three consecutive days at both RBI and CGO Complex.

At the same time, according to the party, protest rallies in other states would also take place.
