Opposition wants discussion on demonetisation to start in Lok Sabha, followed by voting. Why is the Government shying? | FULL TRANSCRIPT
Madam, today in the morning we wanted to say that we should make an obituary reference for the jawans who have lost their lives. It was not an attempt to hurt you through our walkout; if it has hurt you, we express our regret. But we still feel that the Government couldn’t supply you with positive information.
Madam, regarding the running of the House, it is absolutely correct that we have moved Adjournment Motion under Rule 56 and the treasury benches have want discussion under Rule 193. I am of the same opinion that there be discussion immediately. You can scrap Rule 56, you can also scrap Rule 193; you have every authority to find out the third way.
Why is the Government, in spite of a brute majority in the House with over 300 MPs, afraid for voting? That is to be clarified. We are for discussion. We will put our observation. We may shift from Rule 56 for the sake of the country, if necessary. They should also withdraw the demand for discussion under Rule 193 if necessary, but they should come to a position where you have your capacity, Madam.
You can endorse any rule, with voting. Discussion with voting is our only demand. You give consent to that and let the discussion start from tomorrow morning wholeheartedly. Let us exchange our ideas and views and come to a conclusion. We are committed against black money, we are committed to fight black money, we are committed to see that black money holders be sent to prison for life.
