Prime Minister attends Lok Sabha as per opposition wishes but doesn’t say a word
Prime Minister Modi attended Lok Sabha for the first time in this winter session today, but held back from making any statements, while Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi continued his accusations.
Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday takes a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that he kept even finance minister in dark about the demonetisation, but kept his friends aware of the plan.
In a statement, Rahul Gandhi said that Prime Minister didn’t discuss his plan with finance ministry and also claimed that Prime Minister’s friends and BJP members knew about the plan. He also said that demonetisation is the biggest impromptu financial experiment taken by Prime Minister Modi.
He said, “He goes and talks to concert, but not in Parliament.” He has been targeting Modi’s address at Coldplay concert in Mumbai, which he did via video conferencing. He has been repeatedly questioning why is Prime Minister afraid to come to Parliament.
He said that 200 Ministers are together and want Prime Minister Modi to come and attend our debate. He said, the opposition wants debate under adjournment motion, which Prime Minister should come and attend.
He went on to claim that poor and farmers are the worst affected of the decision of Demonetisation. He questioned, “Why are 1 billion people being harassed?” He added, crores of people are disturbed by the government’s decision.
He alleged that there is a scam behind this decision, and there should be a JPC enquiry into the decision.
