Continuing the fight against demonetisation the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Wednesday asserted that the currency swap has adversely affected the nation, asserting that the ruling party has been carrying out a 'political vendetta' against all parties opposing demonetisation.

Taking their agitation against banning of high denomination notes forward, TMC leader Derek O` Brien said that 45 MP's of West Bengal along with  chief minister Mamata Banerjee will meet President Pranab Mukherjee later today to discuss the ill effect of demonetisation on the nation.

"The Trinamool Congress has been holding protests across the country, in fact in nine states, today is the third day in Delhi. The state of the nation is not good. Our 45 MP's will go and talk to the President today and we are very thankful for him to give us time at 2 pm today. We will also give him a memorandum" said Brien.

The TMC MP also slammed the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) for launching a political vendetta against their movement opposing demonetisation and said, "The political vendetta launched by BJP on our party or any other opposing its demonetisation move is not right."

The TMC earlier this week launched countrywide protest demanding the removal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "save the country".

Terming as "flop show" Prime Minister Modi's 8 November decision of spiking Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes, Trinamool supremo and West Bengal chief minister Banerjee said the party will hold demonstrations in Odisha, Punjab, Bihar, Manipur, Tripura, 
Assam and Jharkhand, besides West Bengal and the national capital.
