VIJAYAWADA: Union Minister for Urban Development M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday slammed the opposition for disrupting Parliament and felt the parties had lost an opportunity to make clear their stand and offer valuable suggestions on issues that have arisen post demonetisation of high value currency.
“They disrupted Parliament by raising frivolous issues rather than demonetisation. Not allowing Parliament to function is contempt of democracy,” he said. Naidu, who visited a paediatric and cardiac camp organised by Healing Little Hearts Foundation, UK and Andhra Hospital at Atkur near here, said demonetisation was a step taken to curb corruption.
He said excess revenue that could accrue to Centre due to demonetisation will be spent on health, education, housing to the poor and also on crop insurance schemes.
