Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov. 14 (ANI): Acknowledging the temporary inconvenience being caused to the general public by the government's demonetisation announcement, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, said national interest is more important at the present time, and by and large, the people were in support of this initiative to end black money transactions.

"I believe today that people of India stand united in solidarity to fight against black money, to fight all the corrupt and to be in solidarity with the honest of this nation," BJP leader Shaina NC told ANI.

"Our Prime Minister needs to be applauded by us for the kind of emotion and commitment he has to this nation," she added.

On the Prime Minister's speech in Goa yesterday, Shaina NC said, "In the most emotional speech, he has said how he wants only 15 days for the better good of public at large, and if we have to view this in totality, we must understand that there are honest and the dishonest, but are government stands with the honest and will choose that part right till the end."

She said that the opposition is clearly playing politics and they are inconvenient because of the inconvenience caused to them. "I don't think the public of this country have an iota of doubt on the credibility, the commitment and the solidarity of the honorable Prime Minister," she said.

"Arvind Kejriwal will say what he wants. Nobody pays heed to inconsequential selfish commentary which is only politically driven. Our PM has the integrity, the courage of conviction to lead by example, and if 50 days of inconvenience ensures 50 years of national interest and national good. I'm sure the people of this country will stand by our government," she added.(ANI)
