Exclusive: The conversation that took place between PM Modi and RBI Governor Urjit Patel, before demonetization!


Place: Prime Minister’s Office, Delhi

It’s Urjit Patel’s first day at RBI Governor.

Urjit Patel: Good morning sir

 PM Modi: Hmm…

Urjit Patel: Sir, I want to thank you personally, for giving me this prestigious opportunity and I want you to know that I won’t let you down. What would you like me to do? 

PM Modi: Demonetisation

Urjit Patel: Ummm… Sir, it’s my first day, it will take…

PM Modi: Don’t worry about all that, my team has planned this with great detail. We execute it in 2 months.

Urjit Patel: What should I do then?

PM Modi: Just sign on the new 2000 rupees and 500 rupees notes.

Urjit Patel: Ummm…. Ok, sir!

PM Modi: Thank you

{This conversation is a parody piece and it did not take place but I wonder, after seeing the implementation of the demonetization drive, if the real conversation would have been any different from this.}
