Demonetisation: Surgical strike on common man, says Kejriwal
Delhi Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused the NDA government of selectively leaking the details of the ban on high denomination currencies to BJP and its friends. He added this is not the surgical strike on black money but on the common people of the country.
“Before the PM announced the move on Tuesday, the BJP, and its friends had been alerted and they had already stashed their cash,” Kejriwal said.
“A huge scam has been perpetrated a few days ago in the name of tackling corruption,” Kejriwal accused. “When the PM announced the move, he had informed all of his friends who had black money and they secured their money,” the Aam Aadmi Chief added.
Narendra Modi’s dramatic decision came on Tuesday. But a BJP official in Punjab posted on Twitter with bundles of the new 2,000 rupee notes, Kejriwal said.
The another thing is that despite all the chaos that is going on, no black money will come back in the system. Black money will only be redistributed, it will only change hands,” he added.
