If I am allowed to speak on note ban,there will be an earthquake : Rahul Gandhi in Parliament

New Delhi, Dec 9 (IBNS) : Amid the continuing verbal war between the Treasury Bench and Opposition members that kept eluding a debate on demonetisation, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi said on Friday that if he is allowed to speak up, it will cause an "earthquake," reports said.

Gandhi said  his speech challenging the Government over its demonetisation drive is ready, but he is being prevented from delivering it because the Government  keeps evading a debate.

. "If they allow me to speak in parliament, you will see what an earthquake will happen," Gandhi, who earlier had vowed not to let the Prime Minister "run away from a discussion," said.

Earlier,  BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi slammed the Opposition in Lok Sabha for disrupting the parliamentary proceedings and even quoted the President for the same.

She said if the Opposition wants, they can can go Jantar Mantar and protest.

The Congress has been spearheading the Opposition onslaught in Parliament over the ban on high-denomination notes that has triggered a cash crisis across India causing an unprecedented situation.

With just four days to go before the Winter Session of parliament concludes, the opposition and the Government seem to have taken an irreconcilable opposing stands on how to debate the demonetisation issue.

The differences have left Parliament paralysed since the session began on November 16.
