Woman removes clothes at RBI, India

Demonetization fallout: Woman removes clothes at RBI gate

Indian Government once again retracted to its own assurances to public on Demonetization

Since the last day to exchange currency notes with banks has passed, the people are turning to RBI (as it was told by the govt) to get the new notes in lieu of their old. Unable to get a few junked currency notes exchanged, a frustrated poor woman became topless in front of RBI regional office in New Delhi.


The woman, who was with her child, was in tears when turned away by guards after repeated request to exchange her junked notes. In protest she sat in front of the RBI entrance gate.

When the guards tried to forcefully move her away from the entrance, the woman in disgust took off her clothes and sat topless in front of the iron gate, stunning the onlookers as well as the security personnel.

Later, the RBI guards called the police and she along with her kid was bundled away to police station, thus ending the surcharged drama at the high profile building which is just a stone’s throw away from the Parliament House.

Many others including retired and aged persons who have come to exchange their old notes said the government should not go back on the promise made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his November 8 address to the nation that old notes could be exchanged at the select RBI offices till March 31.

A day later Members of All Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) staged a protest before RBI regional office on Street here, registering their anger over theincident.

The women protesters, numbering around 35, raised slogans against RBI and attracting a crowd of passersby.

 “This incident exposed how people, especially women were suffering due to and lack of in banks and ATMs. We have conducted a survey which reveals that ATMs in many areas are lying without for a long time,” said general secretary Asha Sharma.
Central Governments key ally Shiv Sena described it as the “worst regime in 10,000 years” and said the BJP leaders are living in fool’s paradise to think that the exercise would eradicate black money after putting even women to great difficulty.
Shiv Sena said the plight of the hapless mother looked like a “government sponsored Nirbhaya tragedy.
“If the government cannot see and understand the suffering of this woman, then such a ruthless and deaf regime would not have been in existence in the last 10,000 years,” the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
