Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 16 December appealed to the nation to embrace digital payment methods to curb corruption and black money.

Briefing the media about PM Modi's speech at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Ministers Ananth Kumar said that PM Modi has said that a digital economy is important as it will keep the system transparent which will provide security to the rights of poor and the middle class will get freedom from corruption and black money.

PM Modi, during the meeting, also asked BJP MPs to go to their respective constituencies and talk about a cash-less economy.

Zee News quoted PM Modi as saying, "Earlier the government used to commit scams and the Opposition used to oppose it. Now the NDA has started a mission to eradicate black money and the Opposition is opposing it."

"For the NDA, the nation is bigger than the party, but for the Congress, the party is always ahead of the nation."

The Winter Session of Parliament, which began on 16 November, is set to be washed away over Opposition's protests on the government's 8 November demonetisation move. Today is the last day of the session.

Both sides have been claiming that it's the other side which is not allowing a debate in the Parliament.
