Rahul Gandhi posed 5 top questions to the Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the decision of Demonetisation and it’s nuances.
On the Congress party’s 132nd foundation day,”50 days are coming to an end, the PM needs to answer key questions,” he spelled out to the reporters.
“Modiji has performed demonetisation yagna for 50 families and one per cent super rich people of the country,” Gandhi added.
“What are the collections after November 8? What is the loss incurred by economy? How many people have died after November 8, have they been given compensation? How much black or untaxed money has come back into the system since November 8?” he asked.
Congress Vice-President also added to the list of questions, “Who were the experts the PM consulted before the notes ban?”
In concrete retaliation, senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu firmly questioned: “Does the Congress believe that there’s no black money? If the Congress believes that there is indeed black money and corruption, why didn’t it act? Why didn’t Congress bring out the Benami property law before parliament in 1988?”
Naidu also highlighted that Congress didn’t make any move to mitigate the menace of black money, even after Supreme court issued it’s directives to do the same.
Reiterating the apparent divide in the opposition, Venkaiah said caustically,”Why did your friends in the opposition parties refuse to join you in your smear campaign?”
The point BJP was trying to drive home was the AgustaWestland chopper scam, underwent by the Congress officials.
It is indeed a well-known fact that Congress paid a more than hefty sum during the UPA rule for supply of a dozen choppers, which was not for public but for the corrupted and perfidy-involved Congress top officials.
