Demonetisation: Opposition set to corner Modi govt in Parliament and outside

Wednesday may turn out to be the Opposition's day in Parliament and outside.

The Congress party is being joined by the Left, Trinamool, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party to form a group of 13 outfits that will protest in the Parliament complex against the government's demonetisation move.

That is not all, after the protest concludes, the parties are likely to disrupt the House ? like they have done in the past four days ? over the Narendra Modi-led government's decision to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1000 banknotes.

Meanwhile BJP, not in a mood to give in, continues to evade the Opposition's demand that PM Modi clarify issues related to demonetisation in Parliament.

Outside the parliament, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee will be sitting on a dharna in Jantar Mantar against demonetisation.

Banerjee, along with Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had earlier served a three-day ultimatum to Modi to withdraw demonetisation calling it a "draconian measure."
