New Delhi: In an attempt to know the public’s opinion on the government’s demonetisation move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked people their first hand view on the decision taken regarding currency notes.
PM Modi took to his Twitter account and asked people to participate in a survey through his newly launched ‘NM’ application.
“I want your first-hand view on the decision taken regarding currency notes. Take part in the survey on the NM App,” PM Modi Tweeted

The survey has been designed in the form of 10 questions. Some of them are:
* What do you think of the Modi government’s move of banning old Rs 500 & Rs 1000 notes?
* Did you mind the inconvenience faced in our fight to curb corruption, black money, terrorism and counterfeiting of currency?
* Do you think that black money exists in India?
* Do you think evil of corruption and black money needs to be fought and eliminated?
* Do you have any suggestions, ideas or insights you would like to share with PM Narendra Modi?
It seems that this move by the BJP government to know public opinion has come after a united opposition criticised demonetisation.
Earlier in the day, in an emotional speech before BJP MPs, Prime Minister Narendra Modi vehemently defended the demonetisation, saying that it was done for the benefit of the people.
Addressing the BJP Parliamentary Party, PM Modi urged the MPs to counter what he called was “misinformation” being spread by the opposition parties on the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.
