New Delhi, January 11: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has made a bizarre statement about Prime Minister Narendra Modi as it has claimed about holding a special programme in 14 district headquarters in Kerala, where he would face a mock trial and would be hanged.
CPI-M has used a statement made by PM Modi as the basis of their weird claims as Modi once said that people can 'hang him' if the demonetization exercise does not turn out to be a success.
The members of the CPI-M took the decision to organise a mock trial at the State Committee meeting in Thiruvananthapuram.
"The end result is that Kerala's economy has gone for a toss and each and every sector has been badly affected. We are going to launch a protest with the support of the people," said Balakrishnan.
"The state government will seek the Centre's help to see that the RBI offices at Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi are given permission to accept the spiked currencies from Kerala," he added.
Former Chief Minister of Kerala V.S. Achuthanandan, who was also present at the meeting dubbed demonetisation as a fraudulent step.
"The very fact that the Finance Ministry is issuing numerous releases clearly shows that the RBI had no clue of what is happening. This was meant to please the 'Adanis' and the 'Ambanis' and for that, the common man has been fleeced," said Achuthanandan.
The party is giving a compensation amount of 2 lakh to the families of people who died waiting in ATM and bank queues.
