Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

today accused the Opposition of moving the goalposts for having a debate on and "wasting" the ongoing session, saying the rival parties stalled for another day despite Prime Minister Modi remaining present in Rajya Sabha.

"I do not know why it (opposition) is moving the goalposts. They were saying the Prime Minister should be present. He was there in today, before and after lunch. He was present in one day.



"It is a great waste of the last 15 days. They are not representing the voice of people and not allowing others to do so. has lost the direction completely," Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said.

He appealed to the opposition parties to start a debate on the issue and put forth constructive suggestions.

The Opposition stalled for the eleventh consecutive day today though Modi was present in Rajya Sabha, a demand they had been making for resumption of debate on demonetisation.
