said, the Opposition had proposed obituary for not only 27 soldiers who died in Uri and Nagrota terror attacks but also for those 83 people who allegedly died due to hardship they faced after demonetisation announcement on November 8.
“We proposed that there should be a obituary reference for these 27 (soldiers), including seven yesterday, and there should be a obituary reference also for the 83 people who have died since demonetisation was announced because of the torture they have been through.
“The government thought it best to dismiss this. This is a government who are now living in their own world, far from reality,” he said.
Meanwhile, Congress MP and party general secretary Digvijay Singh said that every effort should be made to see that India-Pakistan dialogue is open.
“My party and I personally always held that with the neighbour, we should always be open. We can’t have a situation of no dialogue with our neighbour.
“As Atal Bihari Vajpayee had rightly pointed out that we can’t choose our neighbours and that’s a reality. Therefore, we should make every effort to see that dialogue must be open with our neighbour,” he said. PTI MP/ENM
