RBI Governor Urjit Patel shown black flags at Kolkata Airport

He was stopped briefly at the Kolkata Airport by Congress supporters

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Urjit Patel was on Thursday stopped briefly at the Kolkata Airport by Congress supporters. He was shown black flags by Congress workers who were protesting against demonetisation.

Patel was in Kolkata to attend the central board meeting of the RBI. He met senior RBI officials over the situation after the demonetisation decision. He did not give any media statement and was seen dodging reporters in the city. This is a departure from the usual practice where the governor briefs the media about the board meeting.

Earlier in the day, he was also shown black flags by Trinamool Congress supporters outside the regional RBI office. TMC members were seen shouting slogans of ‘Go back Urjit’ and staging a demonstration outside the Central bank’s office. Left too staged a protest outside the RBI office.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been spearheading the protest against the demonetisation decision of the government. She has on several occasions, slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and even sought for the policy to be rolled back.
