Here is a snapshot from today’s edition of The Straits Times. Bhakts can continue to live in a fool’s paradise, imagining that black money has been dealt a fatal blow amid the real human fatalities that they don’t care about.
But the reality is that only those with legitimate cash in India and beyond have been hit.
Worse, rupee hoarding and black money will be back in full force soon after the current mess eases.
The Modi government has simply made it easier for the devious to do so – as they will have bigger notes at their disposal! With Rs 2000 notes, they will have twice the fun!
