Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], Nov. 21 (ANI): The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Monday said ministers had no business enjoying Saturday's music concert by British rock band Coldplay in Mumbai, when the common man was suffering due to the demonetisation of higher currency notes.

"Why do they call every person opposing their ideas corrupt? They should listen to the plea of the people and should try to resolve it. They should not consider the pain of the common people as a joke. The common people are suffering and they are enjoying rock concerts," TMC national spokesperson Derek O' Brien told ANI.

O' Brien also accused the Centre of destroying the economy of the nation by their move.

He was speaking as opposition parties in both Houses of Parliament are expected to meet at 9.30 a.m. today to discuss their strategy to counter the treasury on demonetisation.

"Monday morning plan. #Parliament Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha leaders of about 10 Opposition parties meeting at 930 a.m. Hmmm," Trinamool Congress (TMC) national spokesperson Derek O' Brien tweeted.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on the other hand, has issued a whip to its Rajya Sabha members, asking them to be present in the House for the next three days starting today.

Both the Houses of Parliament have been witness to a stormy debate over demonetisation during the winter session so far. (ANI)
