New Delhi: There seemed no end in sight for the logjam in Parliament over demonetisation as Opposition leaders ruled out talks with the government before its nationwide Akrosh Rally on November 28.
The logjam took a turn for the worse instead when Samajwadi Party lawmaker Akshay Yadav threw pieces of paper at Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, resulting in the first adjournment of the day. In the Rajya Sabha, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley objected when former prime minister Manmohan Singh requested to addresses the House, resulting in chaos and adjournment.
The stalemate between the government and Opposition has kept Parliament from transacting any meaningful business since the Winter Session started a week ago.
Former PM Manmohan Singh speaks on demonetisation in Rajya Sabha. There are many problems with the note ban policy.
Note ban policy is a monumental mismanagement by the Centre. This can be called organised loot and legalised plunder.
Government is ignoring the grievances of citizens. People’s confidence in banking system is weakened.
We do not know what will be the final outcome of demonetisation . This can erode people’s confidence in the currency system. RBI has been exposed with the move. Find practical ways to relief the distress of the people.
PM must come out with big measures to bring back black money. The cooperative banking system in rural india is suffering due to demonetisation.
Small industries have taken a huge hit due to the implementation of demonetisation scheme. Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants 50 days for demonetisation drive but the poor people in the country still suffer.
Those who say demonetisation is good in the long run should recall the quote “In the long run we are all dead.
