Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned for the day after repeated disruptions from a united opposition which demanded an apology from prime minister Narendra Modi over his statement on black money. The parties, led by the Congress, wanted PM Modi to make a statement and sit through the debate on demonetisation. The uproar in Parliament comes as the Left parties have called for a ‘Bharat bandh’ today to protest against the government’s decision to demonetise high-value currency notes without proper planning. Earlier in the day, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi chaired a strategy meeting of party MPs. He reiterated that “the PM should come and talk to us inside the House”. This is the ninth day that both Houses of Parliament are being washed out.

The government meanwhile has expressed confidence in its demonetisation decision and said the masses supported it whole-heartedly. The BJP said the nationwide protests will not be successful as several parties like the JD(U) are not supporting it.

    What a waste of Taxpayers money and time - these opposition lot were going to create this hungama for no reason anyway - that was guaranteed - they have nothing to offer to the nation. They have definitely lost any sympathy that I would have had against Modi

      People are ready to wait in the queue days together to get ticket to watch cricket matches. Now all of a sudden they are impatient. No, its not that, common man has understood the point very well and he is cooperating with Government. It is actually black money holders who cannot convert their money without legitimate reasons are agitating

          Why are these people paid for no work? Start cutting what they are paid. The people have enough of this nonsense. What a waste of money. Let the country run. And to the opposition Mr Modi is heard across India by choice and makes a lot of sense.

              If Modi is clean and clear then why he hesitating to answer the opposition. Whether he is afraid for missing foreign trips in the last 20 days?

                            no political leader, irrespective of party said they are against black money, bet they are not that stupid, opp voiced it in parliament that they were against the way it was implemented, which is taking a toll on the poor and middle cl, but for some mischief BJP/RSS mouthpieces are twisting the w context of what was said in parliament and outside to confuse the people. why is the PM running away from parliament ? if he can talk outside, sure he can talk inside and face questions, since he is solely responsible for taking decisions !!!

                                Then dissolve parliament and go presidential form of govt. /dictatorship. Why this sham called democracy? One party, Congress, is a dynasty and still call themselves a democratic party. Others like SP, RJD etc. are family parties. BJP is a communal and individual based dictator party. Communists are party based dictator party. I do not see any big party left in India who speak and practice democracy. Where is then democracy in India now?

                                    I do not understand why the opposition is screaming and wasting tax payers money by not allowing the parliament to function. Gross indiscipline.No screaming will help them as they were caught unawares with loads of black money and now they are stuck for good.We never had a constructive opposition in India SINCE INDEPENDENCE. The opposition always targets the ruling party irrespective of the good or bad they do. This is bad.

                                      You are upset because Hindus are uniting and moving a head. Many of us love Modi.
