After days of protests and agitations that have disrupted the parliament, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is finally ready to speak in the house of the issue of demonetisation. The Prime Minister also condemned the opposition parties for creating an impasse and not allowing debates to commence on major reforms like the demonetisation drive. The opposition led by Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had repeatedly protested and caused an uproar in the parliament over the absence of the Prime Minister in the house for important discussions.

Union Home Minister meanwhile had urged in the parliamement to not question their integrity and said that the Prime MInsiter would intervene in the matter.
