“People have given a stamp of approval to the November 8 decisions of demonetization by voting for the BJP in the local body elections. After the November 8 decision on demonetization, people voted for the BJP in the local body elections in Rajsthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Chandigarh. The clear verdict by the people in favour of the BJP after the decision on demonetization gives a clear message that the they have supported the Prime Minister’s decision,” said Shah in a media statement.
While alleging that the Opposition, including the Congress, has been indulging in politics over the decision on demonetization, Shah claimed that the people have shown their support to the Prime Minister’s battle against corruption and black money. “People in different states and even in far away rural areas have shown that they are with the decision on demonetization. They have given a clear demonstration of what they think of the decision on demonetization, which the Opposition should understand,” Shah added.
The BJP chief also claimed that the local body poll wins also show people’s support for the “politics of performance” of the saffron outfit
