Trinamool’s Derek O’Brien raises a Point of Order about different designs of Rs 500 notes

FULL TRANSCRIPT

My Point of Order is that Mr Kapil Sibal has raised a serious issue (of different designs of Rs 500 notes). Give us a chance, look at the (currency) notes. The Finance Minister is here. Even if Rule 267 is not allowed, any point can be raised under Rule 258.

For the last three weeks, we are giving Notices to discuss the ill-effects of demonetisation & hasty rollout of GST. Even today it has not been listed. We have given the Notice. As per Rule 29, we have raised this issue before. The Government is not serious about allowing a discussion on the ill-effects of demonetisation and hasty rollout of GST.

Mr Sibal has raised a point of order on post demonetisation and GST. This is a serious issue.
