New Delhi [India], Nov. 14 (ANI): Hailing demonetisation as a 'revolutionary change', Minister of State for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday said the people opposing the move are possibly trying to protect black money or the black money mafias.

"The people, who were earlier saying that why the Prime Minister is not taking any action, are those questioning his move. The entire nation is supporting this initiative and the people, who are opposing it, are maybe somewhere trying to protect black money or the black money mafias." Naqvi told ANI.

Commenting on the expected uproar during the upcoming Winter Session, Naqvi said the Centre is ready to discuss all issues raised by the Opposition.

The Winter Session of Parliament starting from Wednesday is expecting fireworks in both Houses with the opposition all set to target the government on several issues, including demonetisation, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parliamentary party executive will go into a huddle on Monday to chalk out the strategy to counter the opposition.
