Recently a video of an interview of a Dalit student went viral on the internet. The Dalit student says that the demonetization is a scam.
When the student was asked “Why demonetization is a scam?”, he replied, “If the note ban was introduced to remove all the black money from the country, then why none of the celebrities or politicians got caught while exchanging the notes?” When he was asked “Who is his favorite politician?” he said it was Mayawati, the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
The reporter says “All the other children answered politicians like Narendra Modi, Arvind Kejriwal but only this boy said his favorite politician is Mayawati.” “Mayawati worked for the betterment of Dalit caste people when all the other upper caste people were looking down on Dalits.” the student added. When the reporter asks “Where and how did you learn all this from? Did anyone teach you?” the student said “I read newspaper and the people around me discuss mostly about politics.”
