Union Government’s demonetization move has so far imbibed a lot of criticism by the opposition. The opposition — which has repeatedly disrupted both Houses — has accused the BJP-led government of creating “financial anarchy” by scrapping the old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes. First, Opposition parties created an uproar demanding the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the debate, and it continued to disrupt the proceedings even after Home Minister Rajnath Singh assured that PM Modi will himself come and talk.
Also, the Centre is ready to have a talk and discussion too but is also rigid on NOT taking the decision back! Now while the National Democratic Alliance government defended the move, the Opposition brought a new excuse and accused it of mismanagement this time.
Now we have Finance Minister Arun Jaitley slamming the opposition hard in the Parliament for its futility. The Centre is convinced of the validity of the steps taken to curb corruption and black money in the country, believes Jaitley. The Opposition was not ready for a debate on the issue and simply wanted the prime minister to be present during the proceedings, he said, adding that the government had made it clear that it was ready for a discussion on the matter with any Opposition party.
