Salute Mr. Modi. This move has to be celebrated across political party lines. Most importantly by earnest tax payers.
The actor who was also criticised for his stance said that he had supported the move as he thought it was going to get rid of black money.
However, he further stated that he was filled with doubt as the government did not have a strong response to the criticism made by several economists.
Kamal Haasan also stated that if the PM accepts his mistake without being adamant, then one more Salaam is waiting for him. “Gandhi was able to do it, today also it is possible,” he added.
