Note ban: TMC to launch 3-day agitation

6 Jan 2017

Trinamool Congress will launch a three-day nationwide agitation against Centre's demonetisation exercise, party vice-president and MP Mukul Roy said today. All state units would be organising demonstrations against demonetisation from January 9 to 11 in various parts of the country and protests would be held in Assam too, Roy told reporters here. In Assam, a demonstration would be held on January 11 as a part of the scheduled agitation. Several central party leaders were also scheduled to participate in the demonstration and address the protesters, he added. In a sudden move on November 8, the Union government had announced to demonetise high-value currency notes.
