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?
