AGARTALA, Nov 9 (TIWN): Banks in Tripura & other states remained closed for any ‘customer care’ on Wednesday, but the public in Tripura have taken it very positively and enjoying the high demand of 100 rupees. After taking bytes of public it was quite clear that Indian Govt’s decision has been fully supported by public, although anti-BJP parties are to play dirty politics with this decision. A shop keeper said, ‘To some extent may be the customer is less today in few shops but our business is running good. Whatever Govt has decided, it is to bring back the black money and terrorist funded money from the miscreants. This day will be memorized by Indian Prime Minister’s step against black-money”.A little shop keeper who was selling tea said, ‘Rupees 1000/- and 500/- do not matter to us and the strike on these notes remained unaffected with our business.However, people are now eagerly waiting for when the bank will be opened for customer service on Thursday so that they can exchange the money. It has been said that with proper ID card if public go, then bankers will change the notes from Thursday.‘Indian Govt. is making Rupees 2000’s bundle since 1 month; so nothing to worry’, a banker told TIWN.

But on the other hand, as a part of the ever green problem to Indian development, the Anti-Modi parties are scheduled to come on road, protesting against his step.

Calling the government decision to demonetize higher denomination notes as a "gimmick", the CPI-M on Wednesday demanded the cost of withdrawing currency notes to be made public. "This demonetization is attempted as a gimmick to divert attention from serious social and political failures of this government in the past 2.5 years," CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury tweeted. 

"What are the estimates of black money that will be curbed by this move? Government should make the figures public," said the leader of the Communist Party of India-Marxist. 

As part of sweeping steps to battle black money, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Tuesday that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes will cease to be legal tender from midnight of Tuesday.

Yechury said the move was "poorly planned and not thought-through" and did not address the major sources of black money abroad or those invested in property, gold and such instruments.

"To uncover the illicit money trail, we demand that the government release the name of top 100 defaulters of bank loans," added Yechury. 

However, the cause behind CPI-M’s real worry is yet unknown ! The party is lead by few figures as the poorest CM Manik Sarkar, whose bank account left not much for transaction.

But public here is taking the step very positively and they are ready to accept the 1 day trouble for the welfare of the country.
