Bhubaneswar: The ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) on Friday blamed the Centre for ATMs running out of cash across the country and chose to resort to agitation on Saturday.

The party is scheduled to protest for two hours from 10 am to 12 noon in front of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Regional Office in the State capital and all nationalised banks in sub-divisions and blocks across the State, informed BJD general secretary Sanjay Dasburma at a Press meet here.

People from all walks of life including w o m e n, youths, students, farmers and members of the self-help groups are facing a lot of problem due to the cash crunch, president of Biju Chhatra Janata Dal Rana Pratap Patra said and added that a financial emergency like situation has emerged across the country because of this.

Sanjay Dasburma claimed that the ATMs of nearly all banks in the state faced a shortage of cash over the last fortnight and the situation was a product of demonetization.

"Our objective is to make people aware of the issue and we do not want to affect the functioning of the banks. Party members would resort to picketing in front of banks during the protest", he added.
