In a veiled swipe at the BJP-led Centre, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin on Saturday said the Rs 2,000 currency notes withdrawal move is a ploy to hide the Saffron partys electoral debacle.

On his Twitter handle Stalin said: “500 suspicions, 1000 mysteries, 2,000 mistakes ! A single trick to conceal the electoral fiasco in Karnataka #2000Note #Demonetisation.”

Apparently, the reference was to the 2016 demonetisation exercise of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes and the present announcement on the withdrawal of the higher denomination currency notes.
