BSP supremo Mayawati today hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the Rajya Sabha saying that he must apologise for his recent remarks that the Opposition was supporting black money holders. Raising the issue in the Upper House she also said that Narendra Modi must clarify who has the black money. Questioning prime minister’s motive on the issue of demonetisation, she said that if his intention was honest behind the November 8 move, then he must say the same thing on the floor of the house instead of raising the issue outside the Parliament.

Mayawati also got support from other Opposition leaders who also demanded Narendra Modi’s apology for his remarks. Speaking on the issue Opposition leader in the Rajya sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said that the prime minister’s remark earlier in the day on the Opposition was uncalled for and should apologise in the Parliament. He was also supported by senior JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav who also said that the PM must apologise for his comment that the Opposition was favouring black money.

Since the start of the winter session of the Parliament, both Houses have seen adjournment’s continuously since November 16, with very little debates.

Yesterday, speaking in the Upper House of Parliament, former prime minister Narendra Modi termed demonetisation as a case of organised loot and legalised plunder. Manmohan Singh, who is also an economist said it was important to take note of the grievances of the people who were suffering. He further pointed out that at least 60-65 people had lost their lives due to a decision that had been taken to weaken the people’s confidence in the currency and the banking system.

        It was indeed embarring for 2-nd-half year to hear the Congress and its vice-president repeating same on every occasion. It was as if they have found nothing more intelligent or new to say.But yesterday congress took me by surprise saying government could have taken suggestion from X-PM on demonetization, the same guy who wouldn't even scratch his crotch without taking permission from congress president.The same guy who was the ring leader for 3.5lac cr scam in 10yrs of his tenure and all he kept saying i didn't sign any papers.And for today pappu......Mr.modi(PM) said nothing wrong.Its opposition who haven't yet decided whether you are against demonetization as policy or you have the pain for people who are facing few issues here and there. Those against demonetization policy as w are obviously black money ders and he gave statement against these people!!It is opposition who took his comment on self telling public your stand!!70yrs & 22% of our economy is from black and you still got the guts to fight against demonetization.HIPPOCRATES!!!

          PM should clarify who has got black money. He should speak in the parliament and defend his own decision. He is an excellent orator but poor executor.
