Roorkee: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that demonetization is a major step towards making India an economic superpower.
"Demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes is a decision taken in national interest.
“Can't people of the country bear with a little inconvenience if that leads to better things?" Rajnath Singh said in Roorkee during BJP's Parivartan yatra.
"It is a step that will help the country become an economic superpower. Only a courageous and far-sighted Prime Minister could have taken a decision like that," PTI quoted Singh as saying.
He assured the public said that within a month they would be able to withdraw as much money from their accounts as they want.
He also asked them to draw inspiration from leaders like Chandrashekhar Azad and Ashfaqulla Khan for their sacrifices to the country to attain independence.
