Say sorry for Note ban-Prakash Raj to PM Modi

Share This

NOTE BANNEW DELHI: On the first anniversary of demonetization, actor Prakash Raj took aim at the Modi government and asked if it was ready to apologize to the nation for the “biggest blunder of our time”.In his signature  style of tweeting, the actor said the note ban, which was announced in a surprise midnight announcement by PM Modi on November 8 last year, had only served a certain section of the society to illegally convert their black money into white. He also claimed that the move to scrap high value currency notes had crippled the unorganized sector, which mostly deals in cash.”While the rich found ways to convert their black money into shiny new notes.. this disruptive impact made millions suffer helplessly…and the unorganized sector workers went for a spin,” Raj tweeted in a note addressed to ‘whomsoever it may concern’.Then, without directly referring to Prime Minister Modi or the Union government, the actor demanded, “Would you mind saying sorry.. for the biggest blunder of our time?”
The 52-year-old National Award-winning actor has emerged as a vocal critic of major political parties and right-wing outfits, taking to Twitter to raise issues of moral policing, lynching “on the slightest doubt of cow slaughter”, terrorizing in the name of religion and trolling.The actor’s candid views had recently landed him in trouble with the law, with a case being registered against him in Lucknow for making “inappropriate comments” about PM Modi for his silence on the Gauri Lankesh murder. Raj had said the Prime Minister deserves an award for being a bigger actor than him.
