Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju on Sunday said if the Opposition wants to raise the issue of demonetisation in the upcoming winter session of the Parliament, then the NDA government is ready to reply. On Friday, while hitting out at the government Congress leader Anand Sharma had said that the issue will be prominently raised in the Parliament by Opposition parties including the Congress. He had said that the move has made the common man stand in long queues for hours to get his money exchanged.
Another senior party leader Kapil Sibal had also said that hat at a time when the PM should be present in the country, he left for Japan. He further pointed out the difficulties people had been facing due to long queues outside the banks and ATMs across the country. “Account is mine, money is mine, then why should I stand in a line?” Sibal asked.
The senior leader said that the government should have given a comprehensive thought before taking the decision. “This is a decision made in haste” it is “not a well thought out decision”, Sibal said by adding that the Centre is fooling the nation. He made Modi solely responsible for all the inconvenience, common people are facing due to it with the words “banks mein katar hai, aam aadmi laachaar hai aur Modi zimmedar hai” (There are long queues in banks, common men are forlorn and Modi is responsible for this).
In the meantime, long queues were continued to to be seen in Mumbai and Delhi since early morning. Near main ATMs people remained stranded since last night.
