The Congress Party will launch a three-phase stir against demonetisation from 1 January.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala earlier announced that the grand old party would hold protests across the country at block as well as national level.

The high point of the campaign will be a national conference of party leaders on demonetisation, which will be held during the second phase in Delhi.

In the first phase, the party ensured that senior leaders held press conferences across the nation and spoke at length about the flaws of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation move.

The party leaders will hold press conferences on 2-3 January and distribute material highlighting why the demonetisation move was immature.

On 6 January, the party leaders and workers will protest outside the Collectorate offices in all districts across the country.

The party's women wing will hold a 'thali' protest across the nation on 9 January.

The Congress also released a booklet titled 'Arthquake' on the government's demonetisation move.

The second phase of the nationwide protest will begin on 11 January and the third phase between 20 and 30 January.
