Haryana CM Khattar uses new tactic to ignore Zee Reporter’s question on note ban pain - video goes viral
An awkward interview of Haryana CM Manoharlal Khattar on Zee TV has gone viral. It shows him dodging a tough question on demonetisation with a straight face.
On 19 December, Zee reporter Mahender Singh sought Khattar’s response on demonetisation pain. He said the long queues before banks and ATMs were persisting. While the government said it was targeting black money hoarders, it was the ordinary people, who were suffering, he added.
A visibly uncomfortable Khattar ignored the question. Instead he launched into a lengthy response on a group of children from Northeast states, who were touring Haryana. The visit was annual and promoted integration of the country, he pointed out.
But he found that Mahender Singh was made of tougher material.
He persisted and insisted for a response to his note ban question. Khattar said PM Modi had taken the decision to wipe out black money and that the people were with him. The inconvenience will disappear after December 30, he said.
Though Mahender Singh had a few more questions, Khattar walked away.
