Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursdasy by calling his survey on demonetisation as "fake and sponsored" and dared him to dissolve the Lok Sabha and face elections.

"The survey of Modiji is fake and sponsored. If he has guts then he should dissolve the Lok Sabha and face elections, then only real survey can be done," Mayawati told media outside the Parliament.

Mayawati's remarks came after the government on Wednesday said over 93 per cent of people taking part in an app-based survey supported the move. 

Modi had asked people on Tuesday  to give their first-hand views and rate the Centres decision to spike Rs 500 and 1,000 notes on his official app.

On November 8, the government demonetized the higher value currency notes to curb "black money and corruption".

The demonetisation triggered chaos across the country, with people continuing to line up outside banks and ATMs in interminably long queues.

Meanwhile, proceedings in the Lok Sabha was disrupted after Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till 12 noon soon after it met on Thursday as Opposition members trooped towards the speaker's podium and shouted slogans against the demonetisation of high-value currency. The Speaker requested members to return to theirs seats but they refused.

Samajwadi Party leader Akshay Yadav hurled papers towards the speakers' table.

Earlier, there was an obituary reference to former Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav.
