New Delhi, Dec 1: He came; he watched and left without speaking a word on demonetisation in the Parliament.

In spite of the Opposition's repeated demand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is yet to speak on the much-talked demonetisation debate in the Parliament.

He was present in the Parliament on Wednesday, but political uproar erupted over Nagrota terror attack and demonetisation, and both the houses adjourned till Thursday.

However, outside the houses the Prime Minister gave impassioned speeches in public spaces and reiterated the fact that how demonetisation will break the backbone of black money economy in the country.

Modi made fervent appeals to the voters to support his government's move against corruption and black money.

His political opponents, especially Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati and Mamata Banerjee, want the Prime Minister to join the debate in the Parliament.

Few days ago, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the Prime Minister will speak on the issue if needed.

It is not just Modi, who is yet to speak in the Parliament.

Even Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, seen as Modi's biggest rival, did not say a word about demonetisation in the Parliament.

The Congress Vice President was heard giving bytes to journalists against demonetisation, as he tried his luck to withdraw money from ATMs on two occasions.

On Thursday, senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad asked, "Why does not Rahul Gandhi speak in the House?"

"Why are they running away from the debate? Is he (Congress Vice President) more comfortable reading from a paper? We are willing to listen," he added.

We have to wait and watch to see who speaks first in the Parliament.
