After the initial euphoria surrounding demonetisation, there is growing concern over its impact on the rural economy, especially among BJP MPs from poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.

And with queues outside banks and ATMs refusing to shorten even a month after the decision was taken, these reticent lawmakers have now started to discuss the issue among themselves and with the media on condition of anonymity.

A minister from Uttar Pradesh, in fact, met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in Parliament to stress on the need to ease the situation in rural areas.
