The Indian National Congress opposition party has called for nationwide protests to take place on Friday, November 9, over a demonetization policy. Protests will be held outside local party headquarters from 11:00 to 13:00 (local time). A heightened security presence is to be anticipated around such gatherings, along with potential traffic disruptions.
The policy, implemented two years ago by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is perceived by the opposition as having a detrimental effect on the economy.
Individuals in India should avoid all protests as a precaution.
