NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked BJP MPs and MLAs to submit details of their bank account transactions between November 8 and December 31, to party president Amit Shah.
The PM has told them they need to submit the information by January 1, sources said.
November 8 was when PM Modi announced that the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes would be scrapped at midnight, and December 31 is the last day on which the demonetised notes can be deposited.
The move has been hailed by many as a body blow to black money hoarders, but also criticized as a pre-election stunt, ahead of key polls in several states next year.
Demonetisation is being discussed in the Winter session of the Parliament, and yesterday, the Opposition stalled proceedings for the eighth consecutive day. Both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned prematurely.
A number of Opposition leaders, including Mallikarjun Kharge (Congress), Sudip Bandhopadhyay (Trinamool Congress) and Mulayam Singh Yadav (Samajwadi Party), asked that their demand for an Adjournment Motion – and for a debate under a rule that entails voting – be accepted. They also demanded the presence of the Prime Minister during the debate.
