Unearth Badals’ black money in 2 months, else we will, Kejriwal tells PM Modi
AAP convenor Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to unearth the "ill-gotten" wealth of the Badals in two-months time, failing which AAP would do so after forming the government in Punjab.
"We give two-months time to Modi to unveil the black money stashed by the Badals in Punjab and abroad, failing which AAP will not let them go scot-free once it forms the next government in Punjab," he said at a rally here.
The Delhi Chief Minister, who is on an 11-day tour of the poll-bound state, said if Modi was serious to bring out the "ill-gotten" money amassed by bigwig politicians and business tycoons, then he "must let loose his agencies on the Badal family".
"Badals during the last 10 years of misrule amassed huge wealth due to their control on almost all businesses, including transport, cable, mining, liquor etc," he said.
Kejriwal said the time was ripe for Modi to prove his credentials that he was actually after the "black sheeps", instead of harassing the common man through demonetisation.
Promising a "better future" for Punjab that goes to polls in 2017, he said contracts of mining and bus permits, which Badals obtained through "misuse of power", would be taken back and distributed to unemployed youth, once AAP was voted to power.
The AAP leader also asked Modi to "go after Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh and his family, who have opened bank accounts in Swiss bank to stash away their black money."
Kejriwal also criticised both SAD-BJP and Congress for not doing enough to improve the health infrastructure of the state. "During the last 15 years, be it SAD-BJP or Congress, none of them actually worked to improve the health system in the state, which has not only been deteriorated but of late been completely collapsed,” he said.
