New Delhi: Post the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government’s decision to demonetise two big value currency notes to crack down on black money and corruption, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who had opposed this move, in a conversation with NewsX, hit out at PM Modi and said, “I challenge that not even a single penny of black money is going to come into the banking system.”
Scathing his attack at the Prime Minister and BJP, Kejriwal said, “He does not support demonetisation,” and questioned the move taken by the government.
Kejriwal said that they first one who raised the voice against corruption, issue of Robert Vadra, when nobody did.
We have praised the good work done by PM Modi and supported his Swachh Bharat campaign, Yoga, and recently held surgical strikes on terror outfits.
Kejriwal continued and said, “When PM announced that old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will be demonetised, I kept quit for two day and trying to understand what the government has done. But by banning Rs 500 notes and bringing Rs 2,000 is not going to stop the corruption or black money in any case.”
Earlier, people who were involved in corruption used to have Rs 1000 notes and now they will be having Rs 2000 notes. People who are standing in queues, not a single one is having black money, but these are people who have saved their money.
Kejriwal accused PM Modi for informing his friends, own people about this in advance and they all have invested their money in Gold, property or converted them into dollars.
Kejriwal also talked about some data, on the basis of which he said that in the months of July, August and September, amount of money deposited into banks were too high, so this hints that something is wrong.”
This demonetisation is a betrayal with the people of the nation.
