Whereas in one year the number of fake notes of 2000 rupees has increased by 54 percent.
Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he wrote – ‘Hello Prime Minister Narendra Modi, remember demonetisation? He further wrote that remember how Mamta Banerjee criticized your move? You promised that demonetisation would stop counterfeit notes, RBI report says there has been a huge increase in the number of counterfeit notes.
