New Delhi: With an aim to reduce problems faced by people due to demonetisation, PM Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked BJP MPs to campaign against black money.
Also, PM Modi asked the party MPs to encourage people to embrace a digital and cashless economy.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told media that PM Modi thanked people for their support to demonetisation and asked the MPs to encourage them to go for cashless economy.
"He (Modi) said the way people are informed about EVMs during elections, a similar approach should be adopted for encouraging people to go for digital and cashless economy," Ananth Kumar added.
Kumar said the BJP Parliamentary Party passed a resolution hailing people for supporting the demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes that has caused a widespread cash crunch.
Another resolution was passed to ensure smooth functioning of both houses of Parliament.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi while announcing the demonetisation decision on November 8 had said there will be some inconvenience to people for the initial 50-day period after which the situation will ease out.
