New Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday afternoon to discuss demonetisation and the rolling out of the monumental scheme.
Earlier today in Rajya Sabha, FM Arun Jaitley hit out at the Opposition claiming that it was more interested in disrupting the House proceedings.
The Opposition kept on demanding obituary reference for the deaths of people due to standing in queues outside ATMs or banks since the government’s November 8 demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.
Congress, Trinamool Congress (TMC), CPI-M and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) raised slogans against the government as the House reassembled after lunch at 2 pm.
The Opposition MPs objected to the fact that the government did not even circulate the statement among the members.
Ever since the government introduced its demonetisation scheme, people across the nation are facing trouble to get access to the new currency.
However, RBI at regular intervals are coming up with new announcements and making modifications over exchange, withdrawal limits earlier set by it.
