New Delhi, Nov 18: Asserting that Congress was evading debate on the demonetisation issue, Union Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi will intervene in the matter when needed.
The opposition parties have been constantly demanding the Prime Minister's presence in the Parliament.
"Prime Minister jab bhi zaroorat padti hai intervene karte rahe hain, lekin is issue ko lekar disrupt karna theek nahi hai (Whenever there is a need the Prime Minister intervenes, but disrupting Parliament over this issue is not right)," he told reporters here.
The BJP earlier demanded Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad's apology over his Uri attack remark.
"I want to know from Congress that what is their view on Ghulam Nabi Azad's statement," Naidu said.
According to reports, Azad had said that 40 people had died following the government's decision on demonetisation and that these many casualties had not occurred even in the terror attack on the Uri Army camp.
Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the third time today after it witnerssed uproar over the demonetisation issue.
