Demonetisation Issue: Mayawati Dares PM Narendra Modi To Seek Fresh Mandate

New Delhi: BSP chief Mayawati today dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold fresh elections to know the people’s views on demonetisation.

“I want to tell Prime Minister Narendra Modi that if you really are an honest man and want a correct survey and if you have guts, then dissolve Parliament and hold fresh elections,” she said over the demonetisation issue.

Her remarks came a day after the PM’s Office said that more than 93 per cent of the five lakh people who participated in a survey on the Narendra Modi App have supported the demonetisation move.

The issue of demonetisation has rocked both the Houses of Parliament since the commencement of the winter session.

Blaming BJP for the disruption, Mayawati said the entire Opposition is seeking PM’s response in Parliament.

“The ruling party does not want Parliament to function as all the Opposition parties are demanding PM’s presence in Parliament,” she said outside Parliament
