    Good move. It was known from day one that demonitization will slow the economy. You can''t grow by standing in queues for 3 months and it doesn''t need a report by the RBI after 2 years. Now, deregistering 6 lacs shell companies siphoning off black money abroad, Modi has partially plugged the blackmoney hole. Further, there are over 18 lacs deposisters who had deposited abnormal amount during demonitization and they will face the law accordingly. Moreover, lot of poor people had a windfall gain by depositing cash for the rich. Ultimately, it was necessary to cleanse the system. The biggest scam the UPA-II was the over Rs.9 lacs crores loans provided between 2008 to 2014 to their corrupt associates and which the banks declared as NPAs. It is the main reason for major setback and fall of rupee apart from the high crude oil import bill, because Modi Govt had to repair the damage by infusing 2 lac crores into the banking system.
    Do you know .... RAHUL Gandhi in Nov 2010 opened a company called Young India with an investment of Rs.50 lacs and he declares an income of Rs.68 lacs for the company in 2011-12. However, it was found later that Young India had an income of Rs.248 crores in 2011-12 and Rahul with his shares had an income Rs.154 crores, which he had hidden from the income tax department. Do you thing this kongress dynast is honest.. he is out on Bail..should be in jail and instead touring Tibet (Mt Kailash) for political gains.
