New Delhi

Trinamool Congress cornered the Centre over the issue of demonetisation in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha during the opening week of the Winter Session of Parliament.

On the opening day, that is, November 16, Trinamool Congress parliamentarians from both houses of Parliament staged a demonstration outside the Parliament in New Delhi, opposing the move of demonetisation by the Centre and demanding its rollback.

On the third day too, that is, November 18, too, the party’s MPs from both the Houses assembled near the Gandhi statue outside Parliament to stage a dharna, highlighting the plight of the common people due to demonetisation.

Trinamool Congress was the first political party to give a notice of suspension in the Rajya Sabha.

On November 17, in the Rajya Sabha, Derek O’Brien demanded  voting after discussion on the issue of demonetisation. He said, “We think that beyond the debate there should be a voting”.

On the same day, in the Lok Sabha, Sudip Bandyopadhyay moved an adjournment motion under rule 56on the issue. He said, “Let this decision be withdrawn temporarily to chalk out a final plan”.

On November 18, Sudip Bandyopadhyay once again demanded a discussion to censure the Central Government on demonetisation.

Thus ended an eventful week for the party, in which Trinamool Congress dominated the parliamentary proceedings.
