New Delhi, 28 Nov 2016 : The Congress on Monday continued to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his demonetisation decision, terming it the “biggest scam in Independent India” and demanding that he apologise for the “mess” he has created.

Congress also said that Modi has not demonetised the currency but ended up demonetising the economy, the jobs, trade and businesses, the agricultural and rural sectors and the people of India.

“Demonetisation is the biggest scam in Independent India,” party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said at a media briefing.

Demanding that Modi should “apologise for creating a mess in the whole country”, he said the Prime Minister now “needs to come up with a solution for the entire chaos he has created”.

By a “single disastrous decision, Modi has brought the entire country to a standstill and has demonetised the whole country,” he added.

“With one stroke, Narendra Modi has broken the back of the entire agricultural sector,” said Surjewala.

“Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi and the entire opposition have demanded an investigation through Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC),” he added.

Congress also charged the Modi government with changing the rules and directives on demonetisation 105 times in last 19 days.

Put farm laws on hold or we will do it, Chief Justice Bobde tells government

New Delhi, 11 Jan : A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice S. A. Bobde on Monday toughened its stand on the farm laws and said the court has made up its mind to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, which have led to the protest by thousands of farmers at various Delhi borders.

“What is going on? States are rebelling against your laws”, a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde told the Centre. “We are extremely disappointed with the negotiation process,” he said.

“If the Centre does not want to stay the implementation of farm laws, we will put a stay on it,” the CJI added.

“We don’t want to make any stray observations on your negotiations but we are extremely disappointed with the process,” said the bench, also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.

The apex court, which was hearing a clutch of pleas challenging the new farm laws as well as the ones raising issues related to the ongoing agitation at Delhi borders, said it is not talking about the repeal of these farm laws at the moment.

“This is a very delicate situation,” the bench said, adding, “There is not a single petition before us which says that these farm laws are beneficial.”

“We will stay implementation of laws,” the CJI said. “You can carry on the protest. But the question is whether the protest should be held at the same site,” he added.

“Some people have committed suicide, old people and women are a part of the agitation. What is happening?” he said.
