Black money helped economy during global recession: Akhilesh

Lucknow / AMN

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today said that economists were of the view that black money helped the Indian economy in times of global recession.

“I am very clear on this…black money should not be generated. Economic experts say the magnitude of the global economic crisis at times is not felt in India because of strong (parallel) economy of black money,” he said.

“I am opposed to black money. I do not want it,” he said on the sidelines of Indo-Myanmar-Thailand Friendship Car Rally flag off here.

His remarks come in the wake of the government’s sudden decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes to stamp out black money, resulting in serpentine queues outside banks and ATMs.

Akhilesh also said that whichever government had troubled the poor, it was shown the door by the masses. “This government has caused immense pain to commoners,” he said.

The chief minister was of the view that demonetisation will not serve the purpose of checking black money.

“It’s good that corruption is checked and people become aware that there should not be (any) corruption. But this problem cannot be overcome merely by changing Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes…Those who used to keep such notes are now waiting for Rs 2000 notes…,” Akhilesh had said on Saturday.
