New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) Punjab Congress President Amarinder Singh on Sunday said the party’s state unit will move the court over the demonetisation-related deaths across the country.

He also extended full support to the proposed strike by the Chamber of Industrial and Commercial Undertakings (CICU) in Ludhiana over the issue on December 16.

“Around 100 people have died while standing in bank and ATM queues while thousands are suffering due to cash crunch. The Punjab Congress will go to the court over the issue,” said Amarinder Singh.

“The impact of demonetisation on the state’s industries, already in the doldrums because of the Badal government’s policies, has been devastating.

“The Modi government’s ill-planned demonetisation move is virtually a criminal act, which has not only brought many lives to a tragic end but also rendered jobless thousands of contractual employees and labourers in industries,” he added.
