Prime Minister Narendra Modi called on President Pranab Mukherjee on Friday evening, even as a raging debate over the implementation of the government’s demonetisation exercise reached its peak in parliament.

Sources said the meeting lasted for around 45 minutes, but did not divulge the issues discussed between the two.

Prime Minister Modi is believed to have briefed President Mukherjee on the developments that have taken place in the aftermath of the launch of the demonetisation drive.

Proceedings in Parliament have been stalled for the past three days due to the treasury and the opposition trading verbals over the demonetisation decision.
