Gave Corrupt No Time To Prepare, Says PM, Pitches For Digital Eco

Narendra ModiPrime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated his pitch for a digital and cashless economy on Friday and said those criticising the government’s preparedness on demonetization were angry as his government gave them “no time to prepare”.

“Everyone has the right to use their money, but the world is changing today. Money is not available physically. We must move towards a cashless economy,” the PM said at a book launch function in Parliament House Annexe in the run-up to Constitution Day on Saturday.

In an apparent dig at opposition leaders who have joined forces against the move, Modi said those criticising the government’s implementation were blindsided as “we didn’t them time to prepare”.

“Those criticising the move don’t have a problem with the government’s preparedness. They have a problem that they didn’t get time to prepare,” the PM said.

Invoking BR Ambedkar on the eve of Constitution Day, the PM said both were inseparable. “Our Constitution has a very special place in our lives. It is important to be connected with the spirit of the Constitution, apart from being aware of its articles and provisions,” he said.

“January 26 is incomplete without November 26,” the PM said.
