Aakrosh Divas on Nov 28 against note ban.. Power has made Modi blind, says Mamata

New Delhi: The Opposition parties will launch a country wide protest 'Aakrosh Diwas' on November 28 over the BJP-led NDA regime's demonetisation move.

This come as the deadlock continues in Parliament with the government refusing to agree to a discussion in the Lok Sabha that ends in a vote.

Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress staged a sit-in protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on Wednesday to press Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rollback his government's demonetisation drive.

Simultaneous protests will also be held across West Bengal, said sources, adding that the TMC has appealed to NGOs, charitable organisations, political parties, student groups, civil society representatives and others to join the protest against this "financial emergency".

Janata Dal United Rajya Sabha member Sharad Yadav,  and Jaya Bachchan of Samajwadi Party  also joined TMC's protest against demonetisation.

Calling for rollback of note ban, Mamata said that the Narendra Modi government is ignoring the plight of the people. "Power me rehne se aankhen or kaan bandh hojate hain. Itni badi akad hai inme. (Power has made the government blind)," she said. "This is feudal landlord system brought by this government, where poor are snatched off their earnings,"  Mamata added. (Agencies)
