With the Opposition seeking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s participation in debate over demonetisation in Parliament, BJP MP Babul Supriyo, in a cheeky reference, on Tuesday said that why does ‘daddy’ have to come when ‘little kids’ can answer the questions. “Jab chote bache hi inka jawab de sakte hai toh ‘Daddy’ ko aane ki kya zarurat hai?,”said the MP from Asansol.

Both the Houses could not function on fourth consecutive day as the opposition parties continued their protest against government’s decision and prime minister’s absence from Parliament. CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury, while addressing the media, said that his party was examining options of moving contempt notice against the prime minister.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said that criticising the PM had become a fashion because the opposition was rattled by his ‘growing popularity’.

TMC chief Mamata Banerjee and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal too continued their attack on PM demanding a roll back of the demonetisation policy.

It has been almost two weeks since Modi, announced the government’s move of blocking old Rs 500 and 1000 notes in a major push to bring out black money hoarded in cash. This, however, has invited protests and criticism from other political parties because of the inconvenience caused to people due to ‘lack of planning’.

    When the so called kids are terrorising the parliament with their recalcitrant behaviour how can the government put it's rationale for demonitisation. Mr. supriyo must know that in the past 3 months every time the government tried to speak in the parliament matters pertaining to demonitisation the so called kids suppressed their voices by shrieking like lt;br/gt;Cicadas on a rainy night.So the lesson is, if you want to be treated like an adult you have to behave like one.

        I have not seen a single think that AAP has done anything pratical to ease the situation in Delhites to help them though the demotisation. Have they lost the plot. Just belching out loudly against demontisation is not any answer. Arwind Kejriwal should go - he has no real ability to administer Delhi as as CM. He is only using them to try and further his own political ambitions.

          And they used to mock Manmohan Singh and Sonia hi for the same. So what was the progress since then?

            Why no trace of any 'great effort' in the LAST 3 years (since May 2014) in appointing the FIRST LOAKPAAL OF INDIA in New Delhi, Why no trace of any 'great effort' of IMPLEMENTING the LOAKPAAL Act that was ped in the last year of UPA-2. Why no great effort of giving him his office, staff, facilities, Why no effort in building INDEPENDENT CBI, CVC with more power and authority and facility? Or was there any?
