Opposition political parties in India decided to stage a dharna on Thursday morning to mark the completion of one month since the demonetization announcement was made by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi on November 8, 2016.
The fifteen Opposition parties, which have been working together this Winter Session of Parliament to challenge the Modi government over its demonetization move, called it a Black Day, referring to the miseries it has caused to common people for currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 going out of circulation.
The Opposition has been demanding a discussion on demonetization in the Lok Sabha under Rule 184 which allows voting.
In Rajya Sabha, the Opposition is firm on its demand that the PM must withdraw his remarks implying that the Opposition parties are against the move because they have black money.
The Opposition parties have been holding daily meetings through the session to work out a cohesive strategy.
