Hari Krishna Gupta, BJP president of Lidhora town in Tikamgarh district of Madhya Pradesh, who collected the money from his family and friends said a Delhi hospital refused to accept the sum of old currency note, resulting into a delay of his liver transplant, reports The Times of India.Hari stating his difficulty caused by his own party's decision said: "If the transplant doesn't take place in the next five days, I will die." Hari who has been bedridden for the last 5 months since his liver failure, even faces trouble while speaking.His son Amit Gupta owns a small stall for selling samosa, bhajiya and tea.Amit said the demonetisation was astonishing for them because they were keeping the money in cash at home.Amit also said after PM Modi's announcement, they contacted local BJP leaders including the BJP MP from Tikamgarh, Virendra Khatik, for help regarding the crisis but no one has provided any help.
“Nothing could be done so far. We are running out of time", Amit added.Hari's brother said: "Luckily my liver matched with my brother’s, but this problem of currency notes has struck us."The liver transplant requires Rs19,00,000, whereas the family currently possess Rs11,00,000 -- that too in now equivalent to just pieces of paper.The family is planning to sell their house to proceed with the transplant. Till now none has shown any interest in buying the house.
