Patna: Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Sunday thanked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes to fight the black money menace.
"We welcome and thank Nitish Kumar for supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s decision," Paswan, who heads the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), told media persons here.
He also targeted Janata Dal-United leader Nitish Kumar`s allies Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress in Bihar.
"RJD and Congress should withdraw from the alliance if they disagree with Nitish Kumar`s stand to support Modi`s decision to demonetise the 500 and 1,000 rupee notes," he said.
Besides supporting Modi`s demonetisation decision, Nitish Kumar also urged the Prime Minister to act against people having `benami` (by proxy) properties.
