Steal from the country

 

Steal from the country is a commentary on the autocratic state. In a country dependent primarily on a cash based economy, a Prime Minister decides to enact a ridiculous policy that demonetises 86% of the nation's currency. By crippling the large majority of the population through this move, he gains popularity for waving around the carrot of "anti-corruption" measures. As an initiative that was doomed to fail from the beginning, it created a much needed distraction for the social media friendly prime minister to go through with shadier policies. FYI - This is not fiction. These are the facts as they are.
