New Delhi: Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Thursday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold fresh elections to know the people’s view on demonetisation.
“I want to tell Prime Minister Narendra Modi that if you really are an honest man and want a correct survey and if you have guts, then dissolve Parliament and hold fresh elections," she said over the demonetisation issue.
Her remarks came a day after the PMO said that more than 93%of the five lakh people who participated in a survey on Narendra Modi App have supported demonetisation. The issue of demonetisation has rocked both the Houses since the commencement of the winter session.
