AGARTALA, Nov 10 (TIWN / IANS): Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Wednesday termed demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination currency notes as a political gimmick.

Verma said the ties that bind India and US go beyond the friendship between Indian and American leaders. 

"Whether Democrat, Republican, Independent, Red or Blue on the political map, this is something fundamental to our values and to our core as Americans. And it's something, I'm sure, that can be appreciated by all of us here - from both the oldest democracy in the world, and the largest democracy in the world," Verma said.

"The ties that bind our two countries together are based on our shared democratic values, and go beyond the friendship of the American President and the Indian Prime Minister. They go beyond the economic and people-to-people ties. The US-India relationship is vitally important, it is bipartisan, and it is only growing stronger. Here's to another four years of robust US-India Dosti," he said.

The Ambassador said the last two years have been the best in India-US relationship, and added it is a "non-partisan" issue.
