New Delhi: As the demonetisation drive entered second week, the political fight intensified with the opposition parties protesting at Gandhi statue in Parliament premises against the decision to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes on Wednesday. There have been several interruptions and adjournments so far in both houses of Parliament over demonetisation.
To express their dissent on demonetisation about 200 opposition lawmakers stood in a single line at the Gandhi statue on Wednesday and demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s presence in the house.
The Congress had announced the protest with 10 other opposition parties, including the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party, Nationalist Congress Party, the left parties, and the Janata Dal (United).
On November 16 when the winter session of Parliament started, a united opposition has disrupted proceedings continuously with opposition members demanding the presence of PM Modi in the house to debate demonetisation.
