Supported by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed government’s demonetisation move, accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of taking bribes and blaming him of causing trouble to the common man.
The rally was announced with the claim that Kejriwal will “expose the big scam that is demonetisation, ” adding to which, he claimed that this is “the biggest scam since 1947.” He cited the documents with him claiming that raids on Birla revealed Rs 25 crore was paid to Gujarat Chief Minister. He claimed that despite differences with Modi, he believed Modi was honest and is shocked with such revelations.
He further claimed that Income Tax reports have revealed that bribe was paid to Gujarat CM and blamed Modi for supporting Mallya to leave the country. He said that all banks are empty, but government waived off Rs 1201 crores out of Rs 8000 crore loan against Mallya and let him leave the country. He said that government has already started misusing the hard earned money deposited by the public in banks.
He claimed that people are unable to buy food and medicines, but people have already started taking bribe in Rs 2000 notes. He said, ‘How will Rs 2000 note end black money?”
On today’s move of government to allow families with weddings planned to withdraw Rs 2.5 lakh, he asked if Jaitley married his daughter in Rs 2.5 lakh. He also questioned the much-lauded and controversial-lavish wedding of G Janardhan Reddy’s daughter, saying why haven’t Income Tax looked at the source of this money.
He said, weddings are being called off and people are killing themselves “Who is responsible for death of 40 people ” following demonetisation. He warned Modi not to test the patience of public.
He has now reached Reserve Bank of India with Mamata Banerjee.
