No stone pelting on forces in Kashmir after demonetisation move, says Manohar Parrikar

  |   India News

Defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday said that there have been no incidents of stone-pelting in the Valley ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetization decision on November 8.

Congratulating PM Modi for this achievement, Parrikar also said, "Earlier, there were rates: Rs 500 for stone pelting (on security forces in Kashmir) and Rs 1,000 for doing something else. PM has brought terror funding to zero".

The government, since the surprise announcement of the demonetization move, has reiterated that this would not only prevent corruption and hoarding of black money but also go a long way in curbing terror-funding.
