Demonetisation Divides India

India stands divided. One section, by far the largest, is in pain following the ‘demonetisation’ (not the correct word, say some) of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes and the hardship they face in exchanging old notes for new ones; some people have paid the ultimate price of death.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi  asserted that the government has launched a "crusade" against corruption and black money by demonetisation and sought opposition's cooperation for the move.
