The hill TMC is protesting against the demonetization and arrest of their leader Sudip Bandhopadhyay in relation to Rose Valley Chit Fund ghotala, which they claim is a pressure tactics used by the Center to intimidate TMC into silence.
However, protests by hill TMC against the arrested of alleged chit fund perpetrators hasn’t gone down well with the hill populace, where thousands of people were fleeced by Sharada, Rose Valley and Basil chit fund companies.
Nonetheless, Hill TMC leader NB Khawas said in the public meeting yesterday, “Modi promised every citizen 15 lakhs in their account, where is that 15 lakhs? instead now they are making life hell for simple public… just because there is no lines in the Banks, it doesn’t mean that people have stopped suffering… Modi asked for 51 days, but economists say it will take over 600 days for the economy to normalize… we will continue to protest against this absurd move by the Modi government.”
He added, “we will continue to raise our voices for the welfare of the poor people.”
