Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India brought his historic move to the public’s notice of Notes Ban on November 8, which made no sense to many of us. This move created a chaos in the country.
The last two months were not as peaceful as expected. We’ve seen innumerable protests, ample criticism and an escalating number of deaths to prove how we weren’t ready for anything like demonetization.
‘The-asked-tenure’ ended on 31st December and after PM’s promising speeches in several rallies, things are getting normal and back on track, but India is still protesting.
In fact, a 700-km long human chain lined up across the length and breadth of Kerala in protest against Modi’s demonetization.

Kerala says, ‘Burn the Dictator’.
The event was driven by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and former Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan. Around 10 lakh people became part of the 700-kilometer link that was formed from Raj Bhavan in Chennai to Kasargod.

The event created a news around the country.
CPI-M state secretary Kodeyeri Balakrishnan lashes out at the centre and said “success of the protest demonstrated the anger of people towards the policy.”
The CPI-M led ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) has alleged that demonetization was brought in with a political motive without any preparation and that Centre was trying to destroy the co-operative sector under its cover.
The LDF had also accused the Prime Minister of trying to sabotage the federal nature of the country.
Former Kerala Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President V. Muraleedharan said the CPI-M had spread the word that all those who work under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme need not work for the day, but if they come for this human chain, they will get the day’s wages.
