New Delhi:

Both Houses of Parliament witnessed ruckus over demonetisation move on Thursday. Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day after Opposition’s uproar demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s presence in the house.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh addressed Rajya Sabha over demonetisation move. Former PM strongly disagreed with the demonetisation move. He quoted the move as monumental mismanagement, organised loot and legalised plunder.

Samajwadi Party leader Akshay Yadav tore papers and threw it on Speaker’s table. Then, Lok Sabha was adjourned. Mamata Banerjee met President over demonetisation issue.

Here is the detailed account of who said what in the Parliament:
Mayawati - BSP

# "I want to tell Prime Minister Narendra Modi that if you really are an honest man and want a correct survey and if you have guts, then dissolve Parliament and hold fresh elections," Mayawati said over the demonetisation issue.

# "The ruling party does not want Parliament to function as all the Opposition parties are demanding PM's presence in Parliament," Mayawati said outside Parliament.

# PM said wait for 50 days but for the poor section even 50 days can be detrimental.

Arun Jaitley - BJP

# If it is on demonetisation issue, let the Opposition resume the debate and Dr Manmohan Singh speak. Those who didn’t consider scandals to be a blunder, they are considering demonetisation to be a blunder.

# Those parties who were once a part of every scandal in the country are now opposing demonetisation.

# Their govt had the most scams and black money generated during its tenure. 2G scam, Coal Scam everything happened during their govt.

# Govt is convinced that our steps against corruption and black money are correct.

# First day it was a debate without any pre-conditions, from next day they started putting unreasonable conditions and it continues.

# Whole country has seen the government which is full of scandals and the black money also generated in their regime.

# Opposition thinks DeMonetisation is a blunder. Don't they think Commonwealth and 2G was a blunder?

Mallikarjun Kharge - Congress

# We'll first meet Opposition and then decide whether we'll go to meeting called by home minister or not. Let PM or speaker call for meet.

Mamta Banerjee - TMC

# You couldn’t recover Swiss bank black money, but create inconvenience for those with white money; You've created more havoc than Hitler-WB CM

# They are not allowing tax payers to withdraw money from their accounts. This is draconian concept. It is worse than Hitler’s rule.

Akhilesh Yadav – Samajwadi Party 

# Everyone is worried today. Government should give some exemptions to farmers.

Raman Singh - BJP

# Entire country is supporting PM's move of Demonetisation, this will not only curb black money but will bring economic development as well: Raman Singh
