In what can be seen as an unprecedented move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during a special address to the nation, he announced that currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations will be illegal starting 12 midnight on November 8. That is not even four hours after the surprising announcement was made.

The announcement was met with immediate shock and confusion across social media, with people tweeting out their confusion at the sudden step. Most people wanted to know why this step was taken, while others lauded the PM’s effort to counter black money hoarding and corruption.

Several hashtags became trending on twitter like #ModiRockedIndiaShocked, #IndiaAgainstCorruption #IndiaSaysNoToCorruption, #FightAgainstCorruption, #BlackMoney , #CleanTheRupee, #ModiSurgicalStrikeCommonMan, #CurrencyBan, #ModiFightsCorruption, etc.
