Soon after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu did a volte-face on his support to demonitisation, the Bharatiya Janata Party had got in touch with the leader to patch-up the difference, as per a report on The Hindu.
The BJP phoned with no time wasting as soon as the news media reported that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader in a close-party meeting had commented that the demonitisation decision was taken against his wishes and people concerned with managing the crisis were failing.
Chandrbabu Naid was one among the leader who supported the BJP decision to withdrawn notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations and heads the committee of Chief Ministers to advise the government on how to move to a "less cash, more digital" economy.
However, BJP feels that the new move from the leader was a pressure tactic to get more assisatice from the Centre for the new state.
Meanwhile, Naidu himself had come out clarifying the news reports on his alleged U-turn in the issue. He said that his comments were misrepresented and he continues to believe that the note ban is a "good decision, although implementation challenges exist".
