(BSP) supremo on Monday said that while her party is not supporting the opposition-led 'Bandh' it opposes the method of move adopted by Prime Minister Modi.

"They are accusing the opposition of going ahead with the Band. They themselves have imposed the by this move. We are not responsible for this," said.

She further said that there was no preparation for this drastic step which has inconvenienced the common people.

"We do not support corruption or black money, but we are against its implementation and the entire opposition is against it. Why is he not ready to answer in Parliament? He is making comments outside," she said.

The opposition parties have called for a countrywide protest today against what they call the government's "mishandling" of the currency ban. Only the Left Front, which has a presence in Kerala, Bengal and Tripura, has called for a strike or 'Bandh' in the three states.

Prime Minister Modi yesterday slammed the opposition for its all-India shutdown call over demonetisation, saying the country instead needed an end to evils like corruption and black money.

Addressing the BJP's Parivartan Rally in Kasya assembly segment of Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh, the Prime Minister said, "On the one hand we are initiating steps to curb corruption, but on the other hand a few people are talking about 'Bharat Bandh'."

He described as a cure to the 70-year-old disease of corruption.
