In a scathing attack on Opposition for stalling Parliament over demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday alleged they were trying to “rescue the corrupt” like Pakistan gives cover fire to terrorists to cross border. He said the note ban will expose the ‘kala dhan’ (black money) as well as ‘kale mann’ (ill-intentions) of many.
