Reports that within a period of less than two months of the Union government’s decision on demonetization, there has been sharp decline in terrorist related activities not only in Jammu and Kashmir but in North East and Naxal dominated areas of the country, themselves speak that demonetization is proving an effective strike on terrorism besides bringing out black money.
In an official handout, BJP State General Secretary Dr. Narinder Singh said that as per the latest reports, after the decision of Narendra Modi-led NDA government on demonetization, fake currency racket has been busted; terror funding stands chocked and there are no funds for stone pelting, with just few isolated incidents of stone pelting, are the results of considerable drop of 60% in the terrorist related activities.
As per these reports, there has been 50% drop in Hawala operations resulting into drop in terror financing. All this has happened for the first time in the country and is the result of hard strike of demonetization, Dr. Narinder Singh said and added that the basic objective of demonetization is seen going in right direction and thus bringing the desired results.
Dr. Narinder Singh further said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a bold and historic decision to nullify the currency notes of rupees 500 and 1000 as a move to check fake currency, black money and corruption. It had been a common belief that large scale use of fake currency was the fuelling source in terrorism funding and the demonetization has badly hit its spine to a great extent.
The BJP leader said that while the entire country has appreciated the decision on demonetisation but unfortunately some political parties, particularly Congress, Trinamool Congress and Bahujan Samaj Party, have unleashed a false and negative propaganda without going through the success of the strike on demonetisation on terrorism. The opposition and non cooperation by these parties to the Narendra Modi led government on demonetisation has also exposed them for their non commitment to eradicate corruption, bring out black money and nail the anti national activities.
