Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday chaired an all-party meet ahead of the winter session of Parliament that begins on Wednesday.
In the meeting, the PM urged all parties to cooperate inside as also outside Parliament on issues of black money, and corruption. “The PM said let a signal go from Parliament’s Winter Session that all parties can come on one page on issues of national interest,” BJP leader Ananth Kumar said.
After the party, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) said the currency spike by the government has spread chaos across the country. CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury said it has been critical about the manner in which demonetisation was implemented, as the common man was being harassed by this decision.
“We will raise this issue tomorrow that many people are affected with this. The Government didn’t manage alternate arrangements. In last few days many people have died and committed suicide. State Chief Minister of Kerala and Tripura has written to the Prime Minister. We demanded the transaction of state fund,” he added.
While joining hands in opposing the demonetisation of high-value currency notes, the Opposition parties planned to hold another meeting to chalk out their strategy for Parliament’s winter session, starting on Wednesday.
