The Communist Party of India (CPI) on Saturday condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's attack on the opposition for questioning the government's demonetisation drive and said that he should uphold the constitutional morality by justifying this move in Parliament.
CPI leader D. Raja said the Prime Minister should come to the Parliament, listen to the debate and respond instead of making speeches outside.
"If he thinks his decision is correct then he should come to the Parliament, justify his decision and should listen to the various views of political parties rather than making allegations," he told ANI.
Stating that the Prime Minister should stand by the Constitution, Raja further said that he should uphold constitutional morality, adding he is answerable in the Parliament as per it.
Defending the Centre's decision, Prime Minister Modi yesterday said the demonetisation move had empowered the common man in the fight against black money, while taking a swing at the opposition and critics saying they were flustered as they were caught off guard.
"Those criticising the demonetisation move don't have problem with government's preparedness; they have problem that they didn't get time to prepare," the Prime Minister said.
