Shimla:Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Wednesday hailed the central government's decision to demonetize Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, calling it a "bold step" to fight corruption.

"It's a bold step. However, necessary arrangements and steps before demonetisation of currency notes would have ensured safeguard of interest of farmers, small traders, wagers and those who have hard-earned cash money in hand," he said.

"I hail the bold decision and welcome the step taken to curb and stop the menace of black money and fight against corruption," Virbhadra Singh said in a post on his Facebook account.
