Shankkar Aiyar writes about the the role played by the opposition in holding the government accountable:
"...It has been a month since the government rendered illegal over 86 per cent of the currency in circulation. It is by far the biggest decision on currency and the most important political economy decision in four decades. People across the nation are looking for answers, for clarity on the many questions that baffle them. In theory, the Opposition is obliged to make the government accountable. In practice, the parties flail repeatedly."
