Chandigarh, December 24, 2016

National convener of the Bhartiya Janata Party’s IT and Social Media Cell, Amit Malviya today stated that the demonitisation drive initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was an important and a brave decision. Malviya said that demonitisation will definitely weed out black money and the nation will move towards a cashless economy.  Malviya was addressing Punjab BJP leaders at the party headquarters in Chandigarh today.

Amit Malviya made a well-laid out presentation listing out the benefits of demonitisation. Malviya said, “After coming into power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, under a well-planned strategy, encouraged people to open Jan Dhan accounts, bank accounts were linked to Aadhar cards, mobile applications were given preference and digital transactions were pushed and then the demonitisation drive was set in. Almost 80 crores debit and credit cards have been issued in India with which cashless transactions can be easily made. With the help of different mobile applications people can transfer money from their bank accounts and similarly payments can be made to the shopkeepers. The Centre government is offering special rebates for online payments.  Daily around 4 crore people buy petrol from petrol pumps, 30 per cent of which use credit or debit cards. Few years back when computers were introduced people got wary of them but today they have become a part of our lives. Similarly, the demonitisation exercise will bear fruit which we all will relish”.

Malviya also exhorted BJP leaders to spread awareness regarding benefits of cashless transactions among masses. Later Malviya held a meeting with the IT and Social Media team of the Punjab BJP. Convener of the Punjab BJP Social Media cell, Amit Taneja was also present during the meeting.
