Squarely blaming the government for the stalemate in Parliament over demonetisation issue, CPI(M) today said ruling dispensation is not taking any fresh initiative to resolve the problems being faced by the common man due the move. Reiterating that there is no demand for roll back of the demonetisation, CPI(M) leader Mohd Salim said they are seeking solutions to the problems being faced by the people due to the move. Each passing day is becoming worse for the common man and the government action lacks farsightedness and any initiatives to lessen the burden of common man, Salim said. Rubbishing the government's claim that there is a division within the Opposition over the issue, Salim said each party has its own style of functioning but the aim is same that is to diffuse the crisis arising out of the demonetisation through concrete steps. "On the contrary, there is now division in the government's support grouping as MPs from TDP and BJD are also raising questions over the demonetisation implementation," he added. Attacking the government, CPI(M) leader said when the members of the Opposition wanted to say something in the house, a hungama is being created by other side which is not good for Parliamentary democracy. He further said "the government is announcing policies related to demonetisation every day outside Parliament. It should be discussed in Parliament as Prime Minister is accountable to Parliament." Recalling the past, he said there were stalemates on GST issue, but ultimately it was passed when the government took initiatives.
