PM Narendra Modi had offered a deadline of September 30 for those with undeclared incomes to declare it and get past it with some penalties. He even warned of consequences for those not declaring black money. His announcement on November 8 is the equivalent of a “Sudden Death” penalty shoot-out in a Football match. There is no draw. There is one clear winner. And in this one – Modi, GOI and the ordinary people of India are clear winners. Black money hoarders have been dealt the biggest blow in free India. This will likely bring more IT payers and a bigger cashless economy. One of the targets was terror-money. Predictably, the stone-pelters of Kashmir, the rioters, the militants went quiet almost instantly. I had to ask this question:
I cannot help but recall the conversation Shekhar Gupta (who has been ranting against demonetisation) had with the DLF chairman. How shameless scumbags of media casually laughed at corruption, bribery and black money. Here’s the transaction between the two:
Shekhar Gupta “Can you run a property business without bribing?” the DLF chairman replied: ‘In my terminology, what I call bribing, is in two parts: One, where you give money to somebody to facilitate quicker disposal. Second, you give money, if somebody asks you, to do a wrong job. Now in my terminology, bribing is to do a wrong job, which I have never done in my life”. “Facilitate quicker disposal”. The DLF chairman got a Padma Bhushan. And corrupt Congis rewarded many corrupt people with Padma awards. All big businesses in India are corrupt without exception. May be even many medium and small sized ones too. For many, hoarding black money is a compulsion because they have to pay bribes. The bribes and kickbacks mostly went to political parties and govt officials. Ask the scam-ridden, termite-ridden Congress party – they are the biggest experts on this.
Any dramatic change is bound to bring a certain level of trauma. Demonetisation too has brought hardships to the common man waiting in queues to exchange notes or draw money from ATMs. There has been a shortage of new currency. But the people in the Qs were hardly complaining all that much. Most of the complaints came from the politicians. Suddenly these politicians discovered a new-found love and concern for the plight of the poor and common man. Imagine, all three of these poor-lovers held a presser at the same time at 4pm on November 14:
The ones ranting and raving the most and behaving like fish out of water would obviously be the ones hoarding the most black-money for political purposes. Kejriwal, Mamata, Mayawati, Congress and the lot. Of these, Arvind Kejriwal was throwing tantrums and ranting like a little kid whose lollipop was stolen by Modi. He even implied there will be riots and a law and order problem. Of course, AAP is known to have extorted a lot of black cash from hospitals, schools, traders and other business organisations. One of their MLA was caught by IT with 130 crores of unexplained cash assets:
The AAP guys did try to incite people standing in Qs at some places. Even Kejriwal went out to instigate people but was roundly booed and shunted out. The dumbest question that all politicians from the retarded RahulG to Kejriwal to Mamata asked was this one:
“Do you see the rich, black money holding people standing in Qs”?
There were limits to exchange of currency and withdrawals from ATMs but there was NO LIMIT to deposits anyone wanted to make into their bank account. This would naturally be subject to scrutiny and severe penalties and inevitable SHAME. So why would the corrupt criminals turn up at banks? Were these stupid politicians actually expecting those with thousands of crores of black money would go to banks in vehicles to deposit the cash? This foolish argument does not hold any water. Congress claims 86% of currency notes are in 500-1000 denominations. WHY? This itself is ANTI-POOR.
Failing with bogus arguments the next thing they resorted to was to abuse Modi relentlessly. The Opposition claimed Modi had imposed “Emergency”, was behaving like a “dictator” and hate-filled epithets that are remarkable:
It is not merely wrong as RS Prasad suggests. It is the last resort of scoundrels who are increasingly losing political battles and are threatened with the loss of their black money. Stupid Kejriwal even accused Modi of taking bribes worth 25 crores in 2012 as CM of Gujarat. Mayawati cares? Narc who makes statues of herself and her elephants and charters jet to bring in her footwear – does she give a damn about poor? Mamata Banerjee who sells her silly paintings for crores, has party members involved in Sarada-Narada scams cares for the poor? And most of all the Congress, which has looted this country for most of its 70 years of Independence and rotted the poor with stupid slogans like “Garibi Hatao” – they care for the poor? This statement by the moronic RahulG should tell you what dumb leaders Congress has:
“Modi is taking money from the poor into banks
and it will be given to the rich people
who have black money”
That’s from a speech he made at Bhiwandi on November 16. This guy has to be phenomenally retarded to be even making such statements. All he does is “Nautanki” by going into Qs to disrupt ordinary people and do a photo-op. Congress does not give a damn about the poor. Neither does Kejriwal – Delhi is in shambles since he became TwitterCM and even the Delhi HC observed “Delhi is the worst city in India”. The corrupt are the most hit by demonetisation. And Modi knew his targets clearly and I am glad he is not budging and stated there is no question of any roll back. The best part was that in a country as vast as India it was kept a tight secret and Modi himself made the announcement. And the more these stupid politicians attack Modi personally – the more his popularity soars among common people. UP will tell – as Modi’s election armoury has enough to expose these corrupt parties and politicians. Given that demonetisation has hit the corrupt in the media too, a good number of bogus stories were also PLANTED. It had to be the money-laundering NDTV and the corrupt, Modi-hating TOI:
The NDTV article had nothing to do with foreign media and was written by desi, Christian Modi-hating Mihir Sharma. TOI gets into bogus stories every time Modi does something major. This hasn’t stopped since their fake “Rambo” stories. People on SM expose these liars each time they attempt a fraud.
Here’s the funny part. The GOI knew the largest amounts of black money being hoarded was in 500-1000 notes. Apparently, even criminals sometimes don’t seem to learn lessons nor do corrupt politicians. If one watches Hollywood movies involving kidnappings – the ransom is always invariably demanded in smaller notes. Here’s a clip from “Rush Hour” where the criminal demands a ransom of 50 million dollars (Video 1.26 mins):
The criminal demands 20 million in 50s, 20 million in 20s and 10 million in 10s. All in small notes. That’s where our corrupt politicians and corrupt businessmen screwed up badly. So, will black money go away forever? The answer is a clear no. But for the present it will bring a large number of people into the tax bracket and reduce the present black money to garbage. It will also flush out cockroaches like these who now pay utility bills in hoarded cash:
The fight against EVIL is a permanent and eternal one. GOI has definitely goofed up in arranging replacements for old notes and stocking up ATMs but that does not call for demonetisation to be rolled back or scrapped. Definitely not! India requires more reforms on political funding and how transactions are made. Criminals will still find ways to bribe, extort and generate black money in the long-term future. But with this Sudden Death move, Modi has definitely put an end to black rain for a good deal of time to come.
