New Delhi: The winter session of the Parliament starts today and opposition parties have joined hands together to attack the Modi government over demonetisation issue.

In the midst of a heated political debate over scrapping of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has suggested that winter session should focus on state funding of polls, along with simultaneous Lok Sabha and assembly elections. The PM stated, “To improve transparency in public life and combat corruption the discussion in parliament should be concentrated on state funding of polls and Lok Sabha elections.

While chairing an all-party meeting on Tuesday last The PM stated, “I hope a discussion in Parliament on demonetisation would send out a ‘positive message’ that the political class was capable of acting for the good of the people rather than conveying a negative message.”

Congress wants inquiry in ‘leak of information’ case:

  • The treat of winter session being washed out remains as Congress is likely to demand a discussion on scrapping Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, accompanied with a government explanation and an inquiry into alleged ‘leak of information’ about demonetisation.
  • A demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe may also come up from the party in opposition.
