BJP supporter wanted to raise anti-govt slogans in LS, arrested

500New Delhi: In a major security breach, a man tried to jump into the House from the Lok Sabha gallery on Friday.

The man, identified as Rakesh Singh Bagel, was apprehended just in time.

Sources said Bagel attempted to raise slogans against government’s “anti-people policies” but security officials whisked him away.

It was found that he had a valid pass and permission to enter the Parliament premises.

His entry pass was recommended by BJP’s Bhola Singh who is an MP from Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh.

Meanwhile, Only 25% of daily cash demand being met after announcement of demonitisation.

Prior to November 8, the day PM Modi announced withdrawal of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes as legal tenders, average daily cash transported across the country was between Rs 15,000 crore and Rs 20,000 crore. Although the Reserve Bank of India and cash logistics+ companies declined to share the value of currency notes being supplied to banks and post offices around the country, bankers put the figure at about a fourth to a fifth of the pre-demonetisation days.

Supply of currency+ had fallen drastically after November 8, but with each passing day, it is picking up pace, bankers said.

The situation is better in metros where about 25% or more of the daily cash requirement is currently being met. In non-metro areas, the corresponding figure is much lower, they said. The main hurdles in meeting the demand for cash has been choked supply of currency notes from RBI and inability of ATMs to dispense cash as not all of them have been recalibrated to dispense the new Rs 2,000 and Rs 500 notes.
