Lucknow: Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday celebrated the birthday bash of Khazanchi Nath, the boy who was born a year ago while his mother was standing in queue at bank to withdraw cash following Prime Minister Modi's decision to ban currency notes.
Akhilesh Singh Yadav on Sunday posted on twitter a photo in which he is seen holding the "demonetization baby" while his mother is all smiles.
“Khazanchi, born while his mother was standing in queue after Notbandi, turned one. But his parent’s bank account is still without any balance.
“They are still standing in the queue of false expectation and under delusion that one that black money will definitely be brought back.
नोटबंदी में बैंक की क़तार में जन्मा ‘ख़ज़ांची’ एक साल का हो गया, लेकिन उसके घरवालों का खाता आज भी ख़ाली है. वो काला धन वापस आने की झूठी उम्मीदों की क़तार में आज भी खड़े हैं. वो ग़रीब-भोले लोग तो ये भी नहीं जानते कि “राजनीतिक जुमला” किसे कहते हैं. pic.twitter.com/c15VjlBsCi— Akhilesh Yadav (@yadavakhilesh) December 3, 2017
“These poor-naïve people … They don't even know what the "political Joomla" is”, Akhilesh wrote on Twitter tagging the photo.
In a surprising and sudden decision Prime Minister Modi had on November 08, 2016 announced that Rs 500 and 1000 old currency notes will no longer be legal tenders.
The decision created euphoria all across the country. People stood in queue for hours to withdraw cash. More than 100 people had died while standing outside banks and ATM outlets.
Khazanchi's mother, a 30-year-old woman delivered him outside a bank in Kanpur Dehat district on December 03, 2016 where she had been waiting in a queue consecutive for two days with her mother-in-law to withdraw money.
The newly born was named Khazanchi - which means cashier.
