Silent on demonetistion, Modi hopes healthy debate in parliament
New Delhi, Nov 16 (IANS) Without touching on demonetisation that has opposition parties up in arms against the government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday called for a healthy debate on various issues including the GST during the winter session of the Parliament.
“I am expecting a very healthy and useful debate about issues including the GST in this session of the parliament,” Modi said in his brief speech outside the Parliament ahead of the session.
“In the winter session, a very positive discussion will happen and on all issues with contribution of all parties,” he added.
In a sudden move on November 8, Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and 1,000 notes to curb the menace of black money, which political parties have strongly opposed as a meaningless exercise that has only caused trouble to common man.
