From Mann Ki Baat to Jan Ki Baat on demonetization: JanJanKiBaat33

Pradip Bhandari, the CEO and Founder of Jan Ki Baat, tries to understand the public opinion post-demonetization. One interviewee praised PM Modi for the courageous venture his government has undertaken, saying such a huge task needs willpower and willingness to back it. Requesting the public to lend their unending support to PM Modi’s initiative, he observed that these short-term problems faced by the people are temporary and only hasten a stable future. The visibility of Modi’s success will be seen soon, according to him, another reason why public support for and to such a significant social cause is extremely vital. Patience is the key, to a stronger, an honest and free of corrupt elements future.

Demonetization came as a surprise to many when PM Modi declared his, and his government’s intention to clean the nation, on 8 th 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.
