<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and his cabinet colleague Kapil Mishra were detained on Tuesday when they tried to march to Parliament from Jantar Mantar protesting the Centre’s demonetization move.Before beginning the march, Sisodia launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over demonetization alleging he is making people cry and shedding “crocodile tears”.”We don’t like Modi for what he has done in his personal and political life. This is not notebandi but note-badli. The terrorists in Kashmir today were found with Rs 2000 notes. From where are terrorists getting them? Either you are unaware of the lapse or are involved in it.”He keeps crying all the time and makes people cry. But he sheds crocodile tears. The demonetization drive should be rolled back. This is what people want,” Sisodia said while addressing the gathering at Jantar Mantar.He was joined by his cabinet colleagues Gopal Rai, Kapil Mishra and Satyendar Jain. “Neither terrorist funding has stopped nor counterfeit notes nor blackmarketeering. The government has no money to give for OROP to soldiers but waives the loans of industrialists,” Sisodia added.A day after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is presently in Punjab, exhorted people to “change” the Prime Minister instead of the defunct notes, slogans of “note nahi, PM badlo” were raised at the march. “The PM again became emotional… he is not getting any support. Hence, he is crying. The need is to take the fight to the streets,” Gopal Rai said. The Prime Minister had on November 8 announced withdrawal of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. The decision has been drawing criticism from opposition parties. Kumar (49), a resident of Uttam Nagar who sold vegetables in Keshopur Mandi, collapsed outside the Oriental Bank of Commerce branch on Najafgarh Road, while he was standing in a queue to deposit Rs 50,000.Sisodia said the wife of the deceased told him that they did not have any money on them for the past 10-12 days. Kumar was distressed and talked of returning to his native village.The Deputy Chief Minister claimed that Satish fainted after standing in the queue for six hours.Attacking the Prime Minister, he tweeted, “Modiji, after how many deaths will you realise that poor people and not the rich are dying due to your surgical strike (sic),” he tweeted.The AAP has been vocal about their opposition to PM Modi’s demonetization drive.
