New Delhi : A voter and hardcore BJP Supporter wrote an open letter to PM Naredra Modi raising 11 questions on Demonetisation and its affects and seeking for answers.
Dear Modi ji,
I loved you, I voted for BJP, I saw you as a ray of hope for India. I still have a tiny sliver of belief in you. If only I could find answers to these troubling questions which is hitting in my mind day and Night.
1. Why do you lie ?
During your Nov 8 Demonetisation speech, there was not a single mention of a cashless economy. When you saw Rs 14 lakh crore cash in old currency demonetised came into the system, you changed your stance instantly! Why do you keep repeating only the rich will suffer when it is the poorest of the poor that are hardest hit?
2. Why are you not compassionate?
Why you din;t print new notes before scrapping old ones? It would have smooth for all of us. If you thought was printing new notes would cause the decision to leak out of Demonetisation, it means you do not have a trustworthy team. Shouldn’t that be fixed first before fixing the nation problem? Would you announce a war first and then start deploying troops?
3. Why are you turning a blind eye to corruption and black money in your own party ?
If you had first gone after your own party men, bureaucrats, tax evaders and defaulters,I’d have greatly respected you.
4. Why were 2000 rupee notes printed if you wanted to scrap high denomination currency ?
As you claim the high denomination currency was causing corruption, then why printing Rs 2000 note? Is it noe higher then Rs 1000?
6. Why was it printed in a wrong size so that all ATMs need to be re-calibrated ?
Why don’t you get your fact right before printing note with diffrent size, what kind of research was done that your team didn’t know the note will not fit in ATM? You won’t start distributing wrong sized bullets just before battle, would you ?
7. Why you did not anticipate?
Why did you not anticipate widespread suffering this move would cause and take actions to prevent them ?
8. Why no apology or remorse?
Why have you still not apologised/ expressed regret for the massacre of Muslims in the Godhra riots ?
When will you apologise / express regret for the massacre of Muslim life lost during Godhra, being a ruler of state its your responsibility to maintain law and order.
9. Why collective judgement of blame game?
Why did you declare all of us guilty till we proved our innocence? Now, why did you criminalise possession of old notes?
A free country does not let its citizens live in fear. There might be many homes where old notes might be lying forgotten. Do you want to classify all of them as criminals ?
10. Can we expect regrets?
Would you accept you have caused untold suffering to the weakest sections of the society ? Would you apologise it ever?
There are more than 120 people lost their life standing in Bank or ATM queue, have not seen even a single tweet.
11. What about who lost their job due to demonetisation?
Millions of middle class daily wage labour lost jobs due to demonetisation drive, how are you planing to replay them?
You are a gifted orator. You can easily lie your way out of this mess. I hope you won’t do it tonight. I still believe you are a better man than that!
For God’s sake, please skip drama and bringing in the plight of soldiers to bolster your arguments. I respect a soldier, as much as I respect a farmer, scavenger, watchman or a cobbler. They all are vital for our country. No one is more valuable/ special than the other.
Thank you !
