New Delhi : The Government on Friday rejected opposition's demand of Prime Minister’s apology over his remarks claiming they support black money. The leaders also disrupted sessions in both the houses for yet another day of the winter session.

"Those criticising demonetisation don't have a problem with the government's preparedness; their problem is that they didn't get time to prepare," said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a function on Friday morning.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad slammed PM Modi for making such a remark and asked him to apologise. 

"PM today said that opposition is favouring black money, this is a serious allegation against the entire Opposition, he must apologise," said Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Supporting him was BSP supremo Mayawati. She also asked Prime Minister to reveal names of leaders who have unaccounted cash or black money with them.

Mayawati said, "PM must come to House and apologise..., he must also clarify who has the black money."
