Sharad Yadav, Jaitley exchange barbs in RS

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Leader of (rpt Rajya Sabha) and JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav today exchanged sharp barbs in the House over the issue.

The exchange happened when members of the Congress, TMC, and SP were creating a ruckus over their demand that the House mourn the killing of 25 armymen since surgical strikes and deaths of 82 persons in post-hardships.



Yadav said it was unprecedented that there was no obituary reference for the seven army personnel including two senior officers killed in terrorist attack at Nagrota armybase near Jammu yesterday.

As he also raised death of "nearly 90 persons" in post-hardships, Jaitley retorted that he should first discuss within his party and find "if it is agreeable" with the ban on 500 and 1000 rupee notes or not.

His remark was apparent reference to JD(U) chief and supporting demonetisation.

"We are not against demonetisation. We are against the restrictions that have been placed (on withdrawals from own accounts)," Yadav shot back.

The JD(U) leader then went on to ask if Prime Minister Narendra Modi was with him or not.

"Is your Prime Minister with you? Is he listening to you," he asked.
