Slamming the Narendra Modi government over sliding economic growth and increasing job losses, former Union minister Arun Shourie has likened demonetisation to suicide, saying the latter is too "a bold step". He also called the Modi government as "government of twoand-a-half persons".
"This is a government by `ilhaam' (revelation). The PM has the `ilhaam' one night that demonetisation should be done and he does it. In any case it was a bold step. I have to remind you suicide too is a bold step," Shourie said in an interview with NDTV when asked why in his view the government went in for demonetisation. He said, "It was the largest money-laundering scheme ever, conceived and implemented by the government." It was an "idiotic jolt", he said, "every one who had black converted it into white".
