“November 8 is a sad day for India. PM Modi has not been able to understand the feelings of the nation. Demonetization was a disaster," Rahul said after meeting Congress leaders in New Delhi. Rahul chaired a meeting of Congress general secretaries at the party headquarters to chalk out plans for the Black Day on November 8 this year that his party has planned across the country. According to sources, Rahul discussed plans for the nationwide protests on November 8. The day is being observed as a black day by other opposition parties as well.
Modi had announced on November 8 last year that notes of higher denomination of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 had been scrapped, a decision that led to a massive chaos due to cash shortage, and later affected the economy in a significant matter.
