Fight, anger, long ques and disappointment grace India's fight against black money
There is no doubt on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intention of taking India to a bright future, including no corruption and zero tolerance to black money. This is one of the prime reasons why Mr. PM discontinued Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes as legal tender.
It all sounded great; when people sensed path-breaking move from Centre to make India free from black money. While many praised government's call and came up with an instant support, there were some who bashed it completely and cried problems common man will face at initial stage.
The Centre also acknowledged the problems and urged people to have little patience as all problems faced will shape a bright future for the nation.
Long ques, long wait, fights and protests are being reported from several parts of the nation.
The situation worsened when cash ends with banks and people, even after waiting for hours, are left with disappointment.
It all started with praise for PM's bold decision. But as trouble for people is increasing and respite to the issue is diminishing with every passing day, the people perception is also heading towards negative.
Even Finance Minister Arun Jaitley accepted that it will take nearly 2-3 weeks for proper functioning of ATMs and banks.
It will be too early to say the implementation of a great policy failed drastically. But it is not too late to say that common man is facing many troubles in claiming the money he has earned with his hard work.
