Delhi Congress holds protest march against demonetisation

New Delhi, Nov 28 (IANS) The Delhi Congress on Monday held a protest march here to protest against demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 bank notes.

The ‘Jan Akrosh’ (public anger) march was led by Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken.

Hundreds of Congress workers joined the protest march, which started from Mandi House and headed towards Parliament to “wake up the government” to see the hardships faced by the common people following demonetisation.

The protesters raised slogans against the central government and its demonetisation decision.

The opposition parties, including the Trinamool Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party, Samajwadi Party, Aam Aadmi Party and the Left parties, have been criticising the government’s November 8 move of spiking the high-denomination currency notes.

They have also been stalling proceedings of Parliament over the issue for the past two weeks.
