BJP to bring out resolution on note ban at executive meet

The BJP will bring out a resolution supporting demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes at its two-day national executive meeting beginning Friday.

Though the Opposition parties have been attacking the NDA government for causing inconvenience to people and even paralysing Parliament’s winter session, the BJP is going by the feedback it has obtained from the ground level in poll-bound states to aggressively back its stand.

A BJP general secretary claimed during the ‘parivartan yatra’ in Uttar Pradesh – which ended in Lucknow on November 24 after covering 17,000 km – that none of its leaders were confronted by the people, either in urban or rural areas, on the problems faced due to restrictions on access to banking services.

A senior BJP leader said that in the resolution, the party will criticise the Opposition, while backing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s argument that by opposing note ban, they had sided with the corrupt and black money hoarders.

The resolution is yet to take final shape, said a party general secretary.

During the winter session which ended last month, Modi had said the Opposition stalling the session was akin to Pakistan giving cover to facilitate militants infiltrate into India.
Party president Amit Shah issued a statement on December 30 that “people have put their stamp of approval on the demonetisation decision” which was clearly reflected in the  local body election results in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat.

A second resolution will be on the political scenario that would capture the government’s pro-poor politics underlined in his address to the nation on New Year’s Eve.
