Former RSS ideologue KN Govindacharya on Friday said no mechanism was put in place to assess the impact of demonetisation and maintained note ban has led to migration of people from cities to villages due to lack of work.
“Demonetisation impact assessment mechanism was not put in place by the government. People from villages working in cities are returning home due to lack of work,” he said.
Talking about economy, the former BJP General Secretary said the model of GDP-based growth will increase unemployment in the country.
Govindacharya was speaking to the media on the sidelines of inauguration of 4th National Students Parliament at the GH Raisoni College of Engineering in Nagpur.
Taking potshots at the BJP’s 2014 election slogan of ushering in good days, he said ‘ache din’ have come for Income Tax Department and Enforcement Directorate.“They have got an opportunity to show their ‘afsarshahi’ (babudom). The Government should keep a tab and ensure bureaucracy does not act in an irresponsible manner.”
Govindacharya said most of the people in the country support Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Asked about the difference between the Vajpayee and Modi Governments, Govindacharya said the current BJP-led ruling coalition should communicate more with the Opposition.
There is a lack of communication between the ruling party and the Opposition and this should change so as to build trust between them, he said.
