Demonetisation: Opposition slams PM Narendra Modi for being silent in the house
New Delhi : Opposition intensified their protest both inside and outside the house after Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended Lok Sabha on Wednesday after skipping Parliament for five days.
Government sources say that Prime Minister Narendra Modi may attend Rajya Sabha on Thursday to turn the tables on oppositions, which have been stalling the proceedings from past few days.
Opposition had been claiming that BJP-led government has raised severe financial crisis in the country by banning Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.
However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has defended his move at several occasions and also claimed that those who are culprits are against the move.
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for being absent in the Upper House.
“He (Modi) can go to a pop concert and speak, but (cannot come when) 200 MPs of opposition are standing here demanding his presence,” Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said.
The opposition has also decided to observe November 28 as 'Akrosh Divas'.
