What was the Opposition’s stand today in Lok Sabha?

For the first time in Lok Sabha, the government itself was trying to stop the House from running.

Why do you think it did not want the House to run?

Because I think they have doubts that they will be exposed if a discussion takes place… We want to expose this government on how they mismanaged demonetisation.

Wasn’t there an agreement that the debate would take place if the Opposition drops the conditions?

That proposal came from the Speaker herself. She asked us why we were so particular about rules and said she could allow the debate otherwise. So we agreed.

What happened after that?

The Speaker gave the BJD a chance to speak when the situation was same. But Khargeji was not allowed.

What does Rahul Gandhi mean when by saying the Opposition has some personal information against the PM?

He said he wanted to place it in Lok Sabha.
