New Delhi: As the Opposition continues to hit out at the government over its demonetisation move, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday criticised the government and said, “Farmers are in crisis, this is not a natural disaster but one created by the Centre.”

Raising his concerns for farmers and workers employed in small scale industries, Akhilesh said that how will those people survive if this situation prevails for long.

Further scathing his attack on the government, Akhilesh believed that it will take around 6 months-1 year time for the situation to get back to normal.

“When the ATM machines are not accepting the newly introduced notes, then why people would accept them,” Akhilesh Yadav added.

“Jab ATM Machines naye note sweekar nahi kar rahi hain toh insaan kahan se kar lega,” CM Akhilesh Yadav said.

Earlier, during the Parliament’s Winter Session, no business was done in either House of the parliament as the Opposition conitinued to create ruckus over the currency ban.

Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu while briefing the media over Palriament logjam said, “We have said we are ready for the discussion, don’t know why the opposition is creating uproar in the house. The Congress party is trying to divert the issue and is running away from having the discussion in the parliament.” 

I want to know from Congress that what is their view on Ghulam Nabi Azad’s statement,” Venkaiah Naidu added.  

“Congress issue ko divert karne ka prayaas kar rahe hain, aur mujhe lagta hai ki vo charcha se bhaag rahe hain,” Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said.
