"BJP MP Mahesh Sharma's daughter wedding. Is he making all the payments in cheque? Is he managing the marriage in Rs 2.5 lakhs? How were his notes exchanged?" Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Kejriwal asked.

The AAP has been protesting against the central government's demonetisation of Rs 500 and 1,000 currency notes.

The opposition has called for Bharat Band on Monday in protest against the 8 November announcement.

Serpentine queues have been witnessed outside banks and ATMs, as many anxious people waited for hours to deposit or exchange their spiked currency notes or obtain cash.
