On November 8, when the Indian Prime Minister brought his ground-breaking move to the public’s notice, a lot of us couldn’t make sense as to how or why this was needed.
The last couple of weeks have been anything but a peaceful ride. We’ve seen innumerable protests, ample criticism over the web, and an escalating number of deaths to prove how we weren’t ready for anything like demonetization.
Standing one-day away from Modi’s speech and the end of ‘the-asked-tenure’, India is still protesting. The event was driven by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and former Chief Minister VS Achuthanandan, and the CPI-M led ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) in Kerala on Thursday, saw the formation of a human chain extending from Raj Bhavan to Kasargode, to show displeasure against the Modi government’s demonetisation move.
The rehearsal happened 15 minutes before the actual event and at 5 pm sharp, people started forming the human chain.
A pledge was read out that was repeated by all.
Passing through the national highway and districts like Kottayam and Pathanamthitta, the event created news around the country.
