New Delhi: Claiming that the Opposition was trying to sabotage the good work done by the government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Monday asked BJP Parliamentarians not to buckle under pressure from the Opposition.
Stating that the opposition was hard at work to sabotage the process of demonetisation, the Prime Minister assured that the nation has welcomed the step.
He also told the lawmakers that the credit for demonetisation wouldn’t rest with him alone, but would go to all parties which stood with government.
The Prime Minister's assertion comes in the wake of the all out attack launched by the opposition today, as the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) joined forces in tearing down the scheme of demonetisation.
The meet was attended by the Prime Minster, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and the BJP president Amit Shah among others.
Speaking after the meeting, Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu said that the allegations levelled by the opposition on demonetisation issue are baseless and that the government will answer them the appropriate time.
Reiterating the government’s commitment to the move, he added, "There is no chance of rethinking. Mood of the nation is in favour of Modi government. Everyone agreed that this is a historic decision. This is but a temporary pain for larger gain. In the parliament we will get to know which people are on the side of black money hoarders,” he added.
Union Minister Ananth Kuamr also said that all NDA allies extended their support to the PM on the demonetisation issue during the meeting.
The saffron party believes that the demonetisation of Rs 1000/500 currency notes has generated a positive public mood but inconvenience caused to the masses, who have been queueing up for hours outside banks and ATMs for cash, has become a handy issue for the Congress, the Left, TMC, SP and BSP among others, who met leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad earlier today to discuss strategies on tackling the Centre in the Parliament.
