As per news report of NDTV, "Withdraw this draconian decision," said her first tweet barely hours after demonetisation was announced. She also attacked the PM in a subsequent tweet, saying that the decision was "drama" to "divert his failure" because he couldn't get back black money from abroad as promised during elections. She further called it "a financial chaos" and "disaster let loose on the common people of India." She expressed her concern for daily wage workers, small traders, and the common people. "While I am strongly against black money, corruption, deeply concerned...How will they buy essentials tomorrow," she said.
