If Demonetization chaos does not normalize after 30 Dec we will pressurize him to resign – Rahul Gandhi
Delhi: Congress Party and the other opposition parties questioned Modi whether he will stick to his words and resign if Demonetization chaos does not normalize after the December 30 deadline set by him.
A joint press conference held in Delhi constituted of eight Opposition parties.
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee was the first to demand Modi’s resignation.
“The PM had asked people to wait for fifty days on November 8. Only 3 days are left now. Will you resign as the PM if things are not stable after 50 days?” she asked.
“If he does not resign, we will put pressure on him to resign,” Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said.
Gandhi and Banerjee also announced they would sketch an agenda to take on Modi over the scrapping of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 banknotes.
Gandhi raked up allegations of personal corruption against Modi.
“There are documents which suggest Modi has taken money. Why is he not getting these documents probed? Sheila Dikshit (whose names appears in one of the documents) has said she wants a probe. If Shelia ji can demand probe, why can’t Modi?”
“We are together. All Opposition parties believe in democratic principles. I can sit with Mamata ji even though I have slight disagreement with her. We will come up with a common minimum programe or a series of things which we agree on. We see all Opposition parties as assets,” Gandhi said.
