As many as 16 opposition parties met the President at Rashtrapati Bhawan this evening and handed over a memorandum. Emerging from the meeting with the President, Mr Gandhi said This is an attempt to crush the voice of the Opposition. Another leader said unlike an earlier meeting with the President on the demonetisation issue, Mr Mukherjee asked many questions on Thursday. The Bill was passed without discussion in the Lok Sabha. Members' rights to pass amendments were also bypassed.
