3 years of Demonetisation: Netizens react

In 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi left the nation stunned by his sudden announcement that Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes would cease to be a legal tender. He also declared 86 per cent of the currency in circulation as invalid. Listed motives that prompted this move include countering terror funding, corruption and hoarding of black money.

A Twitter user named Karuna, said, “As a commoner, I never felt anything wrong due to demonetization but yes those faced a lot of problems who used to hide money in pillows and mattresses including few politicians too. Right!!”

Another user, Chirag Chauhan said, “Never forget demonetization was best thing Narendra Modi government did. It left zero black money with top politicians, bureaucrats, business, celebrities and journalists! Even after 3 years, they can’t forget it. If you know who are they, just check trend, #DeMonetisationDisaster.”

Here are some of the reactions on three years of demonetisation:
