Kapil Dev backs demonetisation, terms it 'bold step'

November 29, 2016 16:16 IST

Former India cricket captain Kapil Dev has strongly come out in support of demonetisation, saying it is a bold step in the interest of the nation.

"Although it has brought some initial problems, it will bear fruits in the long run," the legendary all-rounder said addressing the annual function of Sat Paul Mittal School in Ludhiana.

The 1983 World Cup winning skipper said that he had nothing to do with any political party but he would not hesitate in appreciating the right step, which is for the benefit of the country.

Kapil called upon the parents present in the function to bear with the situation as it is going to bring tremendous advantage to their children in years to come.

"It is a case of today's pain but tomorrow's gain," he said.
