New Delhi: Upping the ante against Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s continued silence and absence inside the House despite growing demands for him to speak on the demonetisation issue, the Opposition parties on Wednesday held a protest outside Parliament.

Thirteen opposition parties, barring the Left and the Aam Aadmi Party, protested at Parliament`s Gandhi Statue demanding answers on demonetisation.

Among the protestors were leaders from the Congress, the Trinamool Congress and the BSP.

Although the Left did not join the protest, it said that it would mount a separate protest later in the day.

CPI leader D Raja told the media that "approaching the President is the final option" if Modi did not respond to questions from the Opposition.
