Lucknow: Demonetization of old currency notes by the Narendra Modi government has impacted almost everyone in the country in one way or the other. While the opinion remains divided on the positives and negatives of the step, everyone agrees that it has had an impact on everyone. One such group that has been severely affected by this step is the group of paid political supporters who attend political rallies.
The group which attends political rallies to show support for every politician is suffering since demonetization as they are being paid with vegetable Biryani instead of their usual payment of Mutton Biryani.
“We were expecting shortage of cash after this demonetization so we didn’t ask for any cash payment to attend political rallies. However, we made it clear that we will still need a plate of Biryani and a Whiskey quarter to attend a rally. Every political party’s representative agreed but we had no idea that we will be backstabbed like this. They gave us veg Biryani and a desi pauvva after the rally”, an angry rally enthusiast said.
“WTF is veg Biryani, we asked for Biryani and we must get it, we didn’t ask for Pulao or boiled rice. If you didn’t have the money to pay for mutton then you should not have organized a rally in the first place. If it was Chicken, we would have still accommodated but veg Biryani, COME ON”, he screamed in frustration.
Political parties have become very concerned after this news leaked and are worried that nobody will come to attend their future rallies if this news got out.
“So much cash has become worthless paper after this move by Narendra Modi. Now either we can afford to pay them on the day before elections or for attending a rally, can’t afford both”, a politician said on the condition of anonymity.
