Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi, BJP on Wednesday said the government is eager to hear his "scholarly" arguments on demonetisation as it wants to know the Congress vice president's stand on the issue of black money.
Taking a dig at the opposition parties' protest in the morning, Prasad said instead of forming human chain outside the Parliament they should produce a "chain of speakers" inside and start a debate as the government has been ready for a discussion from the first day of the Winter Session.
"The government is very keen to hear Rahul Gandhi's scholarly arguments," said Prasad.
