The Parliament on Thursday witnessed former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh criticising the Narendra Modi government’s move to demonetise ₹500 and ₹1,000 currency notes.
In unusually strong words, the cold-headed Singh called demonetisation “organised loot and legalised plunder,” adding that it was a “monumental management failure.”
In the meanwhile, twitterati activated and tweeted on Manmohan Singh’s speech:

What a boring speech by Manmohan Singh – full of facts, wisdom and humility. Unlike Modi’s..which is full of lies, cheap jokes and drama!

Manmohan Singh spoke slowly, softly and calmly. I’ve never seen him so angry.

Manmohan used like more than 8 words a minute so you know he’s really really angry

Two-time PM, Finance Minister, RBI Governor, Economics from Cambridge – that is Manmohan Singh. Knows more economics than BJP all together!
