Embracing the demonetization move by PM Narendra Modi to curb black money and corruption, Swamy said the results of the exercise would be visible after some time.

“One of the major achievements of the move is that the counterfeit notes which were in circulation in Kashmir have vanished and life has come to normal in that state,” he added.

He mentioned that demonetization was overall a good move even as he conceded that Finance Ministry was “not prepared” for such a big task as well as ATMs were not calibrated for the new Rs 2000 notes, which made it difficult for common people.
