Taking her apprehension against demonetisation of Rs 500/1000 notes to a new level, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said she is ready to even work with CPM, despite ideological difference with them, to save the country. “We may have ideological differences with CPI-M but we are ready to work with it, Congress, SP, BSP to save the country,” said Banerjee in a press conference in Kolkata.
Calling the government anti-poor, the chief minister asserted that a few money launderers are profiting due to this ‘black decision’. “Only 1 % people hold black money; why are the other 99% being harassed for this,” said Banerjee adding that it is a betrayal with people.
Banerjee reiterated that the common people were facing hardships because of government’s decision.”A sudden midnight decision was taken. But few people in the ruling party knew about it,” she said.
