New Delhi: A united Opposition on Monday called for a nationwide Bharat Bandh on November 28 to escalate their protest over the demonetisation drive.
More than a dozen Opposition parties have decided to intensify their campaign against the note ban in the states where they are either in power or have a significant presence.
Earlier today, upping its ante against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s continued silence and absence from Parliament despite growing demands for him to speak on demonetisation, 13 Opposition parties protested outside Parliament.
Among the protestors were leaders from the Congress, the Trinamool Congress and the BSP. Meanwhile, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said the nation is backing the demonetisation decision.
“Let the discussion take place… people want the house to function and debate this issue. The whole nation is backing the Prime Minister on this decision,” he said.
