Opposition Is Just Trying To Defend The Dishonest: PM Modi19 December, 2016, By Cross Town News
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday alleged Parliament was not allowed to function as opposition parties were trying to defend the dishonest and were running away from a debate on the issue of corruption and black money.
Addressing BJP's parivartan rally in Kanpur, he also said some politicians tried to provoke people standing in ATM queues, but their designs were not allowed to succeed as the common man was patient and understood that larger interest of the country was at stake.
He said earlier, the opposition used to disrupt Parliament as they wanted to expose the corrupt, bring out scams. But this time, Parliament was disrupted as opposition wanted to defend the dishonest and hence were running away from debate, he alleged.
"Our agenda is to fight for a country free of corruption and black money. But their agenda is to close (disrupt) Parliament...I am puzzled," Modi said.
