NEW DELHI: Several opposition parties, including Congress, are planning to bring an adjournment motion in Lok Sabha tomorrow to target the government on the issue of demonetisation.

Opposition leaders said the move is being planned to highlight the hardship caused to people including farmers, labourers and small traders due to demonetisation of high-value currency notes.

They said it is also to express concern over the "leakage" of the decision to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned on the first day of the winter session today after paying glowing tributes to nine members and world leaders, including sitting TMC MP Renuka Sinha.

Thirteen parties led by main opposition Congress had yesterday resolved to vigorously raise the issue of hardship faced by the common people due to the exercise aimed at squeezing out black money from the system.
