Massive uproar over Azad's comment on comparing deaths due to Demonetization with deaths in Uri attack


New Delhi, Nov 17: The proceedings in Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day following a major clash between the opposition and ruling members after Congress leader Azad compared Uri terror attack asualties to the number of deaths which occurred due to demonetisation "crisis".

  "People are suffering because of demonetisation. The death toll has reached 40. In the attack by Pakistani terrorists (on Army camp) in Uri (in Kashmir), even half of the deaths did not take place. People double than that figure have died due to wrong policy of the government," Azad said.

  Taking strong objection to this, the ruling side termed the comments as "anti-national" and demanded an apology from the Congress besides seeking deletion of the remarks from the official records of the Upper House.(TNN)
