NEW DELHI: The Union defence minister, Manohar Parrikar on Monday said that since demonetisation of high currency notes “terror funding” has come down to zero and there hasn’t been stone-pelting on forces.
Parrikar speaking at an event said, “In the last few days after PM’s daring move, there hasn’t been stone pelting on security forces. Earlier, there were rates: Rs 500 for stone pelting (on forces in Kashmir) and Rs 1,000 for doing something else. PM has brought terror funding to zero. I congratulate PM for it,” he said.
Parrikar also said those who sponsor “terror” will be affected by the demonetisation.
