“Public meeting against demonetisation at 11 AM at Azadpur Mandi tomorrow. People who are facing problems due to demonetisation reach there,” he tweeted.

Delhi Labour Minister Gopal Rai also said a meeting focusing on the scrapping of Rs 500 and 1,000 notes will be held with traders, farmers and labourers.

The move comes a day after Kejriwal urged President Pranab Mukherjee to direct the Centre to withdraw demonetisation move while demanding a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the scrapping of high currency notes.

The CM, who on Tuesday moved a resolution against the Centre’s decision, had termed the demonetisation as “fraud” on the nation aimed at benefiting a “particular political party”, a veiled reference to BJP.
