New Delhi [India], Nov 28 (ANI): The Lok Sabha has been adjourned till 2 p.m. following uproar by the opposition parties over the government's demonetisation drive.

Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge said the prolonged impasse will end only after Prime Minister Narendra Modi throws light on his decision to demonetise high-value currency notes in the Lok Sabha.

"More than 70 people have died and more than 1,000 people have been injured. This deadlock can only end when the PM comes for discussion in the house," said Kharge in the Lok Sabha.

Retorting to the opposition attack, Union Home Minister said the Centre is ready to debate and added that the Prime Minister will speak on demonetisation if needed.

"If you have a complaint on implementation then we are ready to debate, don't doubt our integrity. You want PM to come to Lok Sabha for this debate then he will and he will make an intervention," Singh said.

Earlier, the house was adjourned till noon. (ANI)
