Challenging the Opposition’s uproar in the Lok Sabha against the demonetisation move, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Thursday slammed the Congress for its “inaction” on black money during its 10-year rule from 2004-2014. “Congress was in power from 2004 to 2014, I challenge them to tell about even one step taken to curb black money in the 10 years,” said Jaitley in Lok Sabha.

He also assured that the situation would get back to normal in time and that the government was trying to solve all the problems. “PM has said that till December 30th, the situation will be back to normal and we’re trying to solve all problems,” said the Finance Minister.

Following the uproar over the issue of demonetisation on Thursday, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for the day. On the Parliament getting stalled over demonetisation repeatedly, Arun Jaitley, through a Facebook post on Monday, said that Congress and Trinamool Congress were indulging in “competitive obstructionism”.
