New Delhi, Nov 22: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday, taking a jibe at prime minister Narendra Modi said: "PM can speak on TV, at a pop concert, but why not in the Parliament?"
Questioning his absence in Parliament to discuss the demonetisation issue, Gandhi made an apparent reference to Modi's address via Live Stream ahead of ColdPlay's concert in Mumbai on Saturday, Nov 19.
Meanwhile, the Opposition has been demanding that the PM discusses and debates the demonetisation issue in the Parliament.

On Monday, Gandhi said: "The biggest economic decision in India's history was taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi without consulting anybody except for 3-4 people."
Meanwhile, Congress leader Anand Sharma too, on Tuesday said: "What is happening in India is continuing illegality; white money is accounted. Nobody can impose limitations on it." If PM Modi is saying that 86% currency in this country is black then it is a very shameful statement, he added.
