Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused the opposition parties of spreading lies about the government’s November 8 decision to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes to fight menaces like black money, counterfeiting and funding of terror activities.
Addressing an election rally in Gónda, the Prime Minister drew an analogy between the ‘third eye’ of Lord Shiva and the ‘intelligence’ of people, saying ‘people can see what is good for them and what is bad using their third eye’.
“Many people are experts in spreading lies but the honest have a third eye like Lord Shiva. They differentiate what is right or wrong. After our decision of demonetisation, a few people are continuously spreading lies. They fear as all their wrong doings are now exposed,” the PM said as he invoked Lord Shiva on the occasion of Mahashivratri.
