On Tuesday evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise announcement, telling millions of Indians that the currency notes for ₹500 and ₹1,000–a whopping 86% of all bank notes in circulation–would become “illegal tender” in four hours.
The very next day, Modi made all national banks remain shut as the massive exercise of replacing the old notes with new ones began, leaving several Indians, particularly poor and needy without any means to obtain cash or to spend their now-illegal tenders. Millions of people, who were traveling and were away from their native were left cashless and they remained hungry, with no food or water to buy.
After announcing this, Modi went to Japan and was found taking selfies and posing for photos in-front of Bullet Trains and flowers.
