Opp steps up attack on Centre

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI/GHAZIPUR, Nov 23 - A united Opposition today protested against demonetisation outside Parliament as Mamata Banerjee hit the streets of Delhi once again, demanding the Prime Minister�s ouster as the �country was not safe in his hands,� but the Government ruled out revoking the exercise, declaring rolling back something is �not in Modi�s blood.�

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, who had taken up cudgels against Modi on the issue, termed demonetisation of high-value currency notes as the world�s �biggest impromptu financial experiment� about which even the Finance Minister and the Chief Economic Adviser were clueless before the announcement was made.

He reaffirmed the demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into alleged leak of the demonetisation decision prior to its announcement by Modi, and participation of the Prime Minister in a debate on the exercise.

Opposition MPs, including those of the Congress, SP, BSP, TMC, DMK, CPI, CPI(M) and some others, staged a demonstration near Mahatma Gandhi�s statue outside Parliament.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, whose party had taken the lead in uniting the Opposition against the Government on the issue, was in Delhi again after a gap of a few days and led a protest by four other parties at Jantar Mantar where she gave a call for Modi�s ouster.

�This Government will have to go...I am sorry to say, the country is not secure under you, Modiji. You do things at your whims and fancies,� she said, addressing the gathering.

Flanked by leaders of the SP, JD-U, NCP and AAP, Banerjee alleged the BJP dispensation had lost its �credentials and credibility� because of the currency crisis.

Accusing the BJP-led dispensation of �looting� the common man, she wondered why those having Swiss Bank accounts were �not touched at all,� and warned that the people would teach a �good lesson� to the ruling party in the upcoming Assembly polls for implementing a �black law.� � PTI
