On a day they were observing 'Jan Aakrosh Diwas' to protest demonestisation, opposition parties on Monday held a strategy meet where they decided to continue their stir in Parliament till Prime Minister Narendra Modi replies to their concerns and a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe is announced in alleged leak of the decision.
A meeting of all the opposition parties, barring JDU, was held in the chamber of Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad in Parliament House in the national capital and it was decided that the protests will continue till their demands are met, sources said.
However, some fissures also appeared in the opposition as the JDU skipped the meeting with sources saying party leader Sharad Yadav had left Delhi early in the morning.
The opposition parties have been divided over the ways to protest against demonetisation ever since Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee decided to march to the President against it.
While she was joined by Aam Aadmi Party, National Conference and Shiv Sena, an NDA ally, other opposition parties stayed away.
Shiv Sena has backed demonetisation but said it is unhappy over the way it was causing problems to people.
