Pay for your dinner

cash ban puts jaitley in a fix

arun-jaitley-finance-ministerDEMONETISATION has not only created anxiety throughout India but NDA’s Members of Parliament are also perplexed by Narendra Modi’s master stroke, with many expressing their anger over the move. The Prime Minister is keeping watch on the discussions and activities of fellow Parliamentarians. Sources inform that five top-ranking ministers have been assigned to organise a dinner with BJP MPs where he and Shah will be available for informal discussions. Each dinner will have 50 MPs. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has been assigned to organise one such dinner. Jaitely appeared to be worried as he narrated the scenario himself. He briefed one journo that his wife and he had withdrawn Rs. 24,000 each. “Caterers are refusing to receive a cheque, how I can arrange a dinner of 50 people in Rs. 48,000,” asked Jaitley. Clearly, even the Finance Minister is feeling the heat. It will take time before parliamentarians are convinced about cashless transactions!
