Bringing back black money complex issue: Amit Shah

Under attack on the black money issue, BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday said government has taken a number of steps and disclosed 700 names to the SIT even though it is a “complex” issue with international treaties coming in the way of acting against offenders.

While addressing the Abhinandan Rally at Ramlila maidan in the national capital, Shah said: “Bringing back black money is a very complex issue. It is not alone in the hands of India to bring back black money stashed abroad. There are several international treaties, which are acting as a hurdle.”

“We have given names of 700 offenders (which was not done by the previous regime) to the SIT and our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has created a consensus among various nations to act on the menace. We promise to punish those offenders once these international treaties are sorted out,” Shah said.

While slamming the opposition for disrupting Parliament sessions, he said: “Their attempts to prevent us from all developmental work will not succeed. If opposition thinks it can stall the development agenda by disrupting Rajya Sabha, then they are mistaken.”

“We will not allow them to create problems in bringing Ordinances, including those on Coal block allocations, Land Acquisition Bill, FDI in Insurance and Mining sector,” he added.

He said: “After full mandate at Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand and Jammu and Kashmir assembly polls, we would like to urge people of Delhi for a clear mandate. Let’s help us bringing in Modi’s ‘victory chariot’ to the national capital.”

Attacking Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Shah said that they are liars and believe in ‘cheap marketing’.
“They are fooling people. One of their leaders (Arvind Kejriwal) went to Varanasi hoping to become Prime Minister but the people there sent him back,” the party president added.

On the context of inflation, he said: “Under the previous rule the inflation stood at about 6-7 per
cent. But after seven months of BJP rule it was brought down to nearly around zero per cent. Prices of petrol, which increased unabated during the UPA rule, have been reduced by Rs 10 during the seven months of the Modi government.”

He further added: “Since prices of essential commodities have come down, every household can now save between Rs 1,500 to Rs 4,500 per month.”

While highlighting NDA decision to regularise unauthorised colonies in the national capital, he said: “BJP government at the Centre has become a symbol of hope and it will never distract from its promise and commitment.”
