"Opposition thinks demonetisation is a blunder. Don't they think Commonwealth and 2G was a blunder? Entire country has seen that scandal-ridden government during whose rule all the black money was generated. Their government had the most scams and black money generated during its tenure. 2G scam, Coal Scam everything happened during their government. Those parties who were once a part of every scandal in the country, those who didn’t consider scandals to be a blunder, they are considering demonetisation to be a blunder," said the Financial Minister.
"Government is convinced that our steps against corruption and black money are correct," Jaitley assured.
