New Delhi:

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday took stock of banking and ATM services in Delhi post Centre's demonetisation move on Monday. Rahul visited city's Jahangirpuri, Inderlok and Zakira areas and interacted with the people standing in queues outside ATM machines.

It has been 13 days since the Narendra Modi government banned high denomination currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 to tame the black money menace and to fight corruption.

The move led to chaos across the country as people queued up for hours to get valid currency notes to meet their daily expenses.

It is the second time in the week when the Congress leader met people in the Capital in this regard.

On November 17, Rahul visited Sarojini Nagar market and met a group of street vendors to enquire how Modi government's currency ban move has affected their business.

However, the Congress leader was left red-faced after he was greeted with pro-Modi chants by the BJP workers.

A united Opposition is all set to corner the government in Parliament on Monday on the demonetisation issue with the Congress issuing a whip to its MPs and leaders of opposition parties slated to meet to chalk out a joint strategy. 

Opposition leaders will meet at around 9.30am and are likely to raise the demand of a joint parliamentary committee probe into the alleged selective leakage of demonetisation information to the ruling BJP. 

Sources in the opposition camp said there is unanimity among all parties on the need for a comprehensive investigation into prior intimation of the decision to some people. 

Here are the live updates: 

# Wherever I went today I saw people were troubled, they said we are standing in queue and bank is giving money to few from backdoor

# Whatever the Prime Minister does is to benefit his own people

# PM Modi is filling coffers of 15-20 selected people, while poor people are standing in queues
