NEW DELHI: On the second one anniversary of the central executive's demonetisation pressure on Thursday, the Congress birthday celebration criticised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Centre's move by means of calling it a 'black day' for Indian democracy and economic system.

"The cost and destruction by demonetisation was endured by every citizen of this country other than few crony capitalist friends of Prime Minister Modi. Demonetisation was a black day for our democracy and our economy," read a put up at the professional Twitter care for of the Congress birthday celebration.

Resonating an identical sentiments, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also took to the micro-blogging site and wrote, "#DarkDay Today is the second anniversary of #DeMonetisation disaster. From the moment it was announced I said so. Renowned economists, common people and all experts now all agree."

"On November 8, 2016, @narendramodi announced demonetisation alias Notebandi. It was an epic failure. Over 100 people died standing in bank queues. On second barsi of this tuglaki farman please observe 2 minutes silence for martyrs of this folly," Congress chief Manish Tewari tweeted.

"We of course are not going to do that! For we are civilised. However @narendramodi 730 days later don't you think you should stand up at 8 PM today evening and just apologise to the nation. After all it is but human to err- It is another matter that over 100 people died due to it," read another tweet.

The Congress birthday celebration is anticipated to observe a 'black day' to mark the second one anniversary of demonetisation, in line with assets.

Last year, too, the Congress and other opposition events protested at quite a lot of places across India towards the central executive's pressure.

"Two years ago,a disaster struck India's economy. So much so that the PM has now stopped speaking about demonetisation after ruining lives of ordinary citizens. History will remember this day as a black day. When you caste your vote for Lok Sabha-never forget notebandi," tweeted Congress chief Ahmed Patel.

On November 8, 2016, the Centre had declared Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes as non-legal and offered new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes.

Since then, quite a lot of opposition leaders have highly criticised the Centre's move, whilst the members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies have backed the decision.
