Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the Opposition wanted Prime Minister Narendra Modi to come to Parliament, listen to the debate on the demonetisation issue and make a statement thereafter on the floor of the House. Speaking to media outside Parliament, Gandhi said things will become crystal clear when Modi will participate in discussions in House.

Jaise hi PM house me aaenge, doodh ka doodh aur pani ka pani ho jayega. Sab saaf ho jayega. Hum bhi bolenge vo bhi bolenge,” he said.

Gandhi also told the media that he was waiting to see PM Modi’s reaction in House given that he has shown various emotions outside on his demonetisation move. “Modiji pehle hass rahe they, apne dekha? Hassi aarahi thi …phir tin chaar bar rona aaya hai, House mey aaiye phir dekhiye kya hota hai (First he was laughing, you saw that, then he cried three-four times. Let come to House and let’s see what happens here),” he said.

Earlier in the day, Modi said the move to demonetise high-value currency notes has empowered the common man in the fight against black money. Taking a swipe at the Opposition and critics, he said they were flustered as they were caught off-guard.

“Those criticising the demonetisation move don’t have a problem with government’s preparedness; they have a problem that they didn’t get time to prepare,” the Prime Minister said. “The common citizen of India has become a soldier against corruption and black money,” he added while stressing on the need for India to move towards a cashless society.

Following the uproar in Parliament over the issue, the Rajya Sabha witnessed two adjournments on the issue of PM Modi’s remarks on black money in the pre-lunch session.
