From Mann Ki Baat to Jan Ki Baat on demonetization: JanJanKiBaat14

Pradip Bhandari, the CEO and Founder of Jan Ki Baat, spoke to a few people gathered near in the Azadpur Mandi where the opposition parties were venting against the Narendra Modi government’s move to demonetize high-denomination currency. One of the people spoken to, mockingly declared that he should be made the Prime Minister to come up with an adequate resolution to the problems tagged with demonetization. Another man noted that the problems that have arisen post-demonetization haven’t been faced by the rich sections of society; it is the poor who are struggling to survive.

Demonetization came as a surprise to many when PM Modi declared his, and his government’s intention to clean the nation, on 8th November 2016. Getting rid of black money formed major chunk of Modi and BJP’s 2014 manifesto. Withdrawal of the legal tender of ?1000 and ?500 met with staunch resistance by some groups and was questioned by many. Though demonization was lauded for its noble goal, it was simultaneously critiqued for the loopholes it contained.

#JanJanKiBaat hopes to capture the pulse of the common man and subsequently, understand the direction in which public perception is heading, regarding demonetization.
