Demonetisation: 'Rolling back something is not in PM Narendra Modi's blood'

New Delhi: Amid protests over demonetisation, Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday ruled out withdrawing the government's demonetisation decision as demanded by some Opposition parties.

"Rolling back something is not in Narendra Modi's blood," M Venkaiah Naidu said.

"Wapas lena Modi ji ke khoon mein nahi hai," he said while addressing a 'mahapanchayat' of Delhi Dehat Kisan Mazdoor in New Delhi.

He made it clear that the decision to withdraw old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes "will not be taken back in any situation".

"The government is ready to make improvement and Opposition parties can come forth if they have any suggestions regarding it," Naidu added.

Naidu's comments came in the background of some parties, including Trinamool Congress and Aam Aadmi Party, vehemently opposing the demonetisation move and demanding its rollback.
