New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that those protesting against demonetisation of old notes do not have a problem with the government’s preparedness for it, but are upset that the government did not give them enough time to 'prepare'.

Speaking at a book launch on the occasion of Constitution Day in Parliament House Annexe in Delhi, Modi said that the common citizen of India has become a soldier against corruption and black money.

 

Pushing for digitisation, Modi said that everyone has right to use their money, but today the country must move towards a cashless economy as the world is changing.

Invoking Babasaheb Ambedkar, the PM said that whenever we think of the Constitution, we remember the Dalit leader and freedom fighter.

“November 26 was decided to be observed as Constitution Day to celebrate the Constitution and have greater awareness among the youth. It is important to be connected with the spirit of the Constitution, not only be aware of its various articles,” Modi said.

He added that though India celebrates January 26 (Republic Day), it would be incomplete without November 26.
