The government's demonetisation drive has paralysed parliament and divided public opinion. Eminent economist Jagdish Bhagwati has, however, given a thumbs up to notes ban and called the criticism of it "cockeyed". Speaking exclusively to NDTV from Columbia University, Prof Bhagwati said that people are only facing "transitional' hardships and asked the critics to stop "shooting from the hip".
