The daily -- Akila -- is at pains now explaining to one and all that it was just an April fool prank as the picture of the story published on April 1, 2016, has gone viral on social media after the government’s overnight decision on Tuesday.
The story which was published at that time said that the National Democratic Alliance government has decided to curb black money and corruption by scrapping these high denomination notes.
By November 8, announcing demonetisation of the currency of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi al
so made similar points.
Was this prank or really were published in support to ease corrupted people favor.
As reported by rediff.com, the daily -- Akila clarified in a later publication that their April 1 news item was purely a prank, not based on any kind of information leaked by officials. They also mentioned that demonetization of high currency notes has been discussed for long in India.
