Opp to seek Prez intervention on IT Amendment Bill issue

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Opposition parties which have been protesting against demonetization today decided to approach President on the Amendment Bill to seek his intervention, alleging that the measure was hurriedly passed in without following the rules.

A meeting of opposition parties was held in the chamber of Leader of Opposition in today morning. It was decided that their delegation will meet Mukherjee this evening.



A united opposition will also hand over a memorandum to the President raising the issue of "trampling" of democratic rights of MPs as the bill was passed without discussion amid din due to BJP's "brute majority" in the Lower House, leaders said after the meeting.

"Representatives of a number of opposition parties and decided to approach the President on the issue of Amendment Bill passed in Lok Sabha," Azad said.

The opposition is also alleging that since Presidential assent was not sought beforehand on the amendments in the Bill, it amounted to "undermining" the authority of the President and rules and procedures were not followed.

The parties have also decided to demand an apology from the Prime Minister for alleging that they are supporting black money hoarders by opposing demonetization.

Among various parties that attended today's meet were TMC, Left, BSP and SP, besides JD(U) and DMK.
