Terming the Narendra Modi government's demonetisation move a 'disaster', West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee took to Twitter on Monday and urged the users to change their display pictures to 'black' on November 8, as a mark of protest.

Mamata Banerjee tweeted: "#Noteban is a disaster. On #Nov8BlackDay to protest against this scam that destroyed the economy, let us also change our Twitter DP to black."

Her remarks came just two days ahead of the first anniversary of demonetisation, that the Opposition has decided to observe as 'Black Day' across the nation.

West Bengal Chief Minister also vented her anger over the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and said it was implemented to harass people.

The chief minister said, "Great Selfish Tax (GST) to harass the people. To take away jobs. To hurt businesses. To finish the economy. GoI totally failed to tackle #GST."

Meanwhile, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has announced that the BJP party will observe November 8 as an 'Anti-Black Money Day' calling demonetisation a huge step to make India a less cash economy.

Jaitley said the top leaders of his party will travel across India to promote 'Anti-Black Money Day'.
