PM Narendra Modi may attend Rajya Sabha today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to face the opposition parties in Rajya Sabha today as they have disturbed both the houses of parliament over demonetization of notes since the winter session began last week.

On Thursday, opposition parties went into a group and pointed out that they might continue to disturb actions in the second week of the winter session.

The Opposition has been angry over Modi’s five-day absence from Parliament House and have requested that he must address both the Houses over the demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

“The prime minister is not able to gather courage to face Parliament. Why is he running away from the battle ground?” asked Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.

On the other hand, Modi has always supported the move that he has taken to remove black money from the country. His initiative will eliminate the illegal cash from the economy.

On Wednesday, his presence in the Lok Sabha falls short to impress the Opposition parties.

PM Narendra Modi took this step on November 8. From the very next day of his announcement, millions of people lined up outside banks and ATMs to exchange, withdraw or deposit the money. Also, several other people died while waiting in the long queues.
