For or against demonetisation PM Modi has 10 questions for youPTI
news Demonetisation Tuesday, November 22, 2016 - 14:02

Two weeks after the sudden declaration demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, Prime Minister Modi launched a survey on demonetisation on the Narendra Modi app.

“I want your first-hand view on the decision taken regarding currency notes,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

To take part in the survey, users have to download the app and register themselves.

The survey consists of 10 questions, some of which ask for “Yes” or “No” responses on black money, terrorism and corruption, while others ask users to rate the demonetisation move. Each registered user is allowed to take the survey once. 

The Yes/No questions include: “Do you think that black money exists in India?” and “Do you think the evil of corruption and black money needs to be fought and eliminated?”

Some of the questions that have multiple options include: “Do you think demonetisation will help in curbing black money, corruption and terrorism?” and “Demonetisation will bring real estate, higher education, healthcare in common man’s reach?” 

 

There are also questions that ask the user to rate what they think of the government’s overall moves to tackle black money, and what they think of the government’s move to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, with options ranging from poor to brilliant. 

While most of the questions are open-ended, the penultimate question in the survey could be a possible reference to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and other activists. The question reads: “Do you believe some anti-corruption activists are now actually fighting in support of black money, corruption and terrorism?”     

The app-based survey comes even as a united Opposition has been attacking the government in and out of Parliament. On Tuesday, opposition MPs stalled proceedings in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha demanding that the PM come to Parliament and participate in the debate over demonetisation. Since, the start of the winter session, both Houses have seen multiple adjournments over the issue.
