Congress on Tuesday dubbed as yet another ‘jumla’ (gimmick) Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to party legislators to submit bank account details after demonetisation and dared him to make public all financial and land dealings of BJP and RSS in the last six months.
Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said Modi’s move is also an attempt by him to deflect public attention from the alleged leakage of demonetisation decision, which he termed as the “biggest scam” in the country so far.
Surjewala along with party leader Sushmita Dev, accused BJP of buying properties in 18 districts of Odisha on the lines of those purchased from in Bihar.
“The manner in which revelations are coming out whereby BJP and its leaders are buying land in Odisha and Bihar, Modiji fears that all this will come out. “All these things point out that there is need to hold a detailed probe into the alleged scam. There is need to hold a detail and thorough JPC probe into the matter,” he said.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi should stop doing theatrics and should stop hiding behind rhetoric. He should stop hiding behind ‘jumlas’. Modiji your real face stands exposed and time has come that you remove the ‘mask of jumlas’ and follow ‘Raj Dharma’.
“If you have nothing to hide, you should make public accounts of BJP and RSS and affiliate organisations six months prior to demonetisation,” he told reporters at AICC briefing.
The Congress media in-charge alleged that this is being done by Modi to divert the attention of public so that they do not ask details of accounts of his partymen before demonetisation.
A/C details should not be shared with Amit Shah but IT dept, says Ashutosh
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has said that BJP MPs and MLAs should make their bank statements and land dealings for the six months preceding November 8, 2016 public. The party questioned- Is our banking system ready for the salary cycle to make transactions easy for working class?
AAP’s national spokesperson Ashutosh said, “The Aam Aadmi Party demands that this information should be made public in the interest of transparency. BJP MPs and MLAs should not only disclose the banking transactions, theirs and their immediate family members, but they should also disclose their land deals in the same period. All the above information should not be given to the BJP party president Amit Shah but to the people of India.”
“It is essential that all the murky transactions of the BJP leaders be exposed. In fact this information should be shared with the Income Tax Department too. What right does Amit Shah have to demand the income details of people’s representatives – is he the national income tax commissioner? Why is PM quiet on the issue of bringing all political parties under RTI? Is it not true that the BJP is one of those 6 political parties that opposed the order of the CIC to bring political parties under RTI? 80 per cent of BJPs funding is from unknown sources – why is Modiiji silent on this issue?,” questioned the AAP spokesperson.
