CHANDIGARH, Nov 9- Haryana Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal has hailed the historic decision of the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi to demonetize the currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations. This is an audacious step taken by the Prime Minister in the interest of the country to hit hard at black money, he added.
The Chief Minister was interacting with the media persons at Haryana Bhawan in New Delhi today. He appealed to the people to keep calm in the prevailing situation and contribute towards the bright future of the country and consolidation of the economic structure. He said that the people might have to face difficulty for two to three days, but it would prove beneficial in the long run. The people could deposit their old currency notes in the banks. This move would hit hard those having black money and would also diminish the possibilities of tax evasion, he added.
In reply to a question regarding reaction of the opposition towards this decision, he said that this decision has been taken after detailed deliberations. The opposition would be worried for its own self, he added.
