Lucknow: Three years ago, on the evening of November 8, 2019 PM Modi in an overhaul had declared that 86 percent of the currency in circulation invalid. On the third anniversary of the move on Friday, Congress’s general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took potshots at BJP-led centre, terming the decision a disaster.

Taking to Twitter, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra asked if the government was ready to take responsibility for its failure. “3 years since Demonetisation and every claim made by the government and those hailing it as a slayer of all evils has been turned on its head. It proved to be a disaster that has all but destroyed our economy. Anyone want to claim responsibility?” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party are set to hold grand celebrations for Khajanchi, who has been dubbed as the demonetization kid, in its headquarters in Lucknow. Khajanchi had been born in the days following the demonetization announcement after his mother went into labour as she was waiting to withdraw money from the bank. The boy was subsequently named Khajanchi, which means banker in Hindi language.

The Samajwadi Party Chief and the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had extended financial help for the family of Khajanchi, who has since become a mascot for demonetization critics. The SP chief has spoken about Khajanchi’s case multiple times and last year had also gifted the family a house. Khajanchi’s mother is specially-abled and his father had passed away a few months before he was born.
