New Delhi: BSP supremo Mayawati challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to call for snap elections to judge the mood of the nation, following his government’s November 8 decision to scrap old high-value currency notes.

The Prime Minister’s Office had on Wednesday released the results of a survey, conducted via the Narendra Modi smartphone app, which it said showed that 93 per cent of respondents agreed with the government’s decision.


“I want to tell Prime Minister Narendra Modi that if you really are an honest man and want a correct survey and if you have the guts, then dissolve Parliament and hold fresh elections,” Ms Mayawati said.

The Prime Minister was present in the Rajya Sabha for an hour on Thursday afternoon.

Four speakers, including former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Ms Mayawati, spoke when the Prime Minister was present in the Rajya Sabha.

After lunch, when the Rajya Sabha reconvened, Ms Mayawati insisted that the Prime Minister be present in the House to listen to all the speakers. The BSP and the BJP are locked in an electoral battle in the upcoming elections for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly. The elections are due early next year.
