West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday slammed the Narendra Modi government by terming the Goods and Services Tax â€œGreat Selfish Tax to harass people and finish the economyâ€.
She said demonetisation was a disaster and urged social media users to change their profile pictures to a black square on November 8 to protest against the note ban.
â€œGreat Selfish Tax (GST) to harass the people. To take away jobs. To hurt businesses. To finish the economy. GoI totally failed to tackle #GST (sic),â€ she posted on Twitter.
â€œ#Noteban is a disaster. On #Nov8BlackDay to protest against this scam that destroyed the economy, let us also change our Twitter DP to black,â€ the chief minister tweeted.
Trinamool Congress had earlier announced that it would observe â€˜Black Dayâ€™ on November 8 to protest against demonetisation across West Bengal.
