Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov. 21 (ANI): The Shiv Sena on Monday said the march against demonestisation could have been implemented in a better way and added that the Central government needs to do a rethink on the issue.

Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande told ANI that the party is with the government in the fight against black money, but added that the public has been inconvenienced by its implementation.

"Basically every upright Indian has welcomed the demonetisation move for the sole purpose of removing black money from the country. But now it is seen that the common man is frustrated by it. And they are into dilemma as to what is going to happen. The Central government needs to think over this," she said.

"Even the farmers, workers and the businessman community met with the honorable Uddhav Thackeray and they urged him to intervene into this situation and convey there situation to the Central government," she added.

Taking the war over demonetisation to the next level, the Opposition parties have decided to protest against the Centre in front of the Gandhi statue outside the Parliament on Wednesday.

The decision was taken in the meeting called today by the Opposition ahead of the second week of the Parliament today.

This come as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) earlier on Saturday issued a whip to its party's Rajya Sabha members, asking them to be present in the House for three days starting today.

According to reports, the Centre had turned down the Opposition's demand saying that the Prime Minister would not speak in the Rajya Sabha on the demonetisation issue.

However, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi is likely to speak in the Lok Sabha today.

The opposition has called the Centre to form a joint parliamentary committee for probing allegations of prior information on demonetisation being leaked to BJP leaders. (ANI)
