New Delhi: Continuing their fight against demonetization the Trinamool Congress on Wednesday asserted that the currency swap has adversely affected the nation, asserting that the ruling party has been carrying out a ‘political vendetta’ against all parties opposing demonetization.

Taking their agitation against banning of high denomination notes forward, TMC leader Derek O’ Brien said that 45 MP’s of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will meet President Pranab Mukherjee later today to discuss the ill effect of demonetization on the nation.

“The Trinamool Congress has been holding protests across the country, in fact in nine states, today is the third day in Delhi. The state of the nation is not good,” said Brien.

“Our 45 MPs will go and talk to the President today and we are very thankful for him to give us time at 2 pm today. We will also give him a memorandum,” he added.

The TMC MP also slammed the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) for launching political vendetta against their movement opposing demonetization and said, “The political vendetta launched by BJP on our party or any other opposing its demonetization move is not right.”

The TMC earlier this week launched countrywide protest demanding removal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “save the country”.

Terming as “flop show” Prime Minister Modi’s 8 November decision of spiking Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes, Trinamool supremo and West Bengal chief minister Banerjee said the party will hold demonstrations in Odisha, Punjab, Bihar, Manipur, Tripura, Assam and Jharkhand, besides West Bengal and the national capital.
