BJP holds Anti-Black Money Day programmes in various parts of the city

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is the ruling party in the State as well as the Centre, organised programmes in various parts of the city on Wednesday to mark ‘Aarthik Vijay Diwas’ or Anti-Black Money Day.

BJP leaders hailed the demonetisation move announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8 last year as a much-needed reform to boost the economy. At the same time, they criticised Congress party for encouraging corruption and weakening the economy during its regime of 65 years.

Ajay Sancheti, Rajya Sabha Member; Sandeep Jadhav, Chairman of NMC Standing Committee; Bhushan Shingne, Shrikant Deshpande, Jayprakash Gupta, Kirtida Ajmera, Sanjay Bangale, and other leaders were present prominently in the programme held at Ram Nagar Square.
Sancheti slammed Congress party for observing ‘Black Day’ on completion of one year of demonetisation. He accused the Opposition of politicising the good move of demonetisation.

“People of India have accepted the step of demonetisation. It will benefit the people in long run,” he said. An indication of popular support to BJP was the stupendous success it tasted in Uttar Pradesh elections. During its regime, Congress party damaged the economy of the country by encouraging corruption. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic decision of demonetisation was aimed at curbing black money and to consolidate the ecomomy of the country, he added.

Sandeep Jadhav and others also spoke. Avinash Dhamgaye, Pragati Patil and a large number of citizens were present during the programme.
Girish Vyas, MLC, was the main speaker in a programme held at Bharat Mata Square in Central Nagpur. Deepraj Pardikar, Deputy Mayor; Archana Dehankar, former Mayor; Dayashankar Tiwari, Sudhir alias Bandu Raut and others also shared the dais.

The erstwhile Congress-led United Progressive Alliance Government had e encouraged black money, terrorism, and Naxalism. However, BJP changed the situation with historic steps like demonetisation, Vyas said. With demonetisation, the country’s economy had taken a great leap forward towards consolidation.

Vilas Trivedi, Kishor Palandurkar, Haji Abdul Kadir, Ashfaque Patel, Vandana Yangatwar, Rajesh Ghodpage, Balu Bante, Shyam Chandekar, Rahul Khangar, Dipanshu Lingayat, Dashrath Maske, Ashok Nayak, Sarala Nayak, Pramod Dahikar, Sanjay Mahajan, Sachin Rathod, Gopal Bankar, Sumedha Deshpande, Shakuntala Parwe, Ashish Pardhi and others were present prominently.
