New Delhi, Nov 14 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday refused the opposition demand to rollback the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, saying the country has welcomed the move, informed sources said.
Modi's stand came at a meeting of the BJP parliamentary party executive meet, sources said.
The Prime Minister told the parliamentary party meet that the "country has welcomed" the move but the "opposition is trying to sabotage" it, the sources added.
Sources also said that Modi told party colleagues that the government need not buckle under the opposition pressure.
The meeting was attended among others by Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar.
The meeting was convened to chalk out the government's strategy for the Winter Session of Parliament, starting on Wednesday.
