Stating that its Polit Bureau has given a call for nation-wide agitations to permit using scrapped notes, CPI (M) State Secretary G Ramakrishnan said here that its special meet at Tirunelveli has decided to hold protests in the State. “Protest demonstrations will be held on November 16 in all the district headquarters and in other places. CPI(M) appeals to people to support the agitations to be held for safeguarding the people’s interests,” he said in a statement. Earlier in the day CPI (M) leader and Kerala Chief Minister questioned the Centre’s claim on the move to check black money, saying that there were reports that black money lobbyists had got prior information about the scrapping of the higher denominations notes. He also alleged that “somebody” close to the Union government, had received prior information about banning of the notes and got opportunity to take precautionary measures.
