Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with senior minister in Parliament on Thursday to find a way to break the deadlock between the government and the Opposition over the demonetisation issue.
The logjam in the Parliament's Winter Session has entered its 17th day with the opposition parties still adamant on PM Modi's apology and holding the debate under Rule 184.
Earlier in the day, Opposition leaders observed 'black day' to mark one month of demonetisation move in front of Gandhi statue inside Parliament premises.
