A month after the demonetisation decision, people across the metropolis and adjoining areas are still struggling to lay hands on cash, adversely affecting their monthly payments and businesses.
Demonetisation exercise and crisis in cash availability resulting in long queues before ATMs and banks has left people disappointed and bad experience, so inorder to thank people the Delhi BJP has asked its cadres to distribute one laddoo per family for their “patience”.
Confirming the decision of distributing ladoos, newly appointed Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari told The Indian Express, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched this revolutionary step to tackle black money. Despite facing some inconvenience, people supported the move. Now, it is our turn to thank them and show our appreciation and respect for their patience.”
He said the cadres have been told to knock on every door, from January 1 to January 10, to distribute sweets in their areas. “We will encourage our workers to reach out to people. Logon ka dhanywaad karna to banta hai (We should express our gratitude). If people can stand in queues and not complain, can’t we give them a laddoo as a token of our appreciation,” said Tiwari.
“One laddoo to your neighbour will not hurt. Rather, it shows how grateful we are to them for the patience they have shown by supporting the Prime Minister’s decision… We will request our workers to come forward and buy at least one laddoo for their neighbour. If they want to buy five laddoos for five households, it will be even better,” he said.
