India Demands switch from ‘Nirav Modi’ to ‘Bol Modi’: Congress

Congress

New Delhi, Mar 6: The Congress on Tuesday questioned the continued silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley claiming India’s ‘Economic Capital-Mumbai’ has reported frauds of Rs 19,317 Cr in last 3 years.

The opposition also charged the NDA government of running away from a debate on the issue in Parliament.

Speaking to media here, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, “fraud, malfeasance, bank loot, cheating and swindling of banks and common people are getting unravelled every day, even as the PM and the FM are on an indefinite ‘maun vrat’.

“The money swindled in the bank scams unearthed recently comes to Rs 54318 crore. In addition, shocking information available through the RTI on February 9, 2018, now reflects that under the BJP government’s watch, frauds and scams of Rs 19317 cr have been reported in India’s economic capital i.e the Economic offences wing, Mumbai alone in the last three years. This takes to Rs 73,635 cr the total amount of frauds during the rule of the NDA government”, he added

What is even more astonishing is that 184 accused in these scams and frauds have escaped. The Modi and the Fadnavis governments appeared to have given a ‘one-way ticket’ to ‘cheat and scout’. the Congress leader further stated.

Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the silence in the matter, Surjewala asserted “it is time to tell the people as to how many fraudsters have already left for foreign shores and tax heavens. Even more inexcusable is the fact that out of Rs 19,317 cr, a pittance of Rs 2.5 cr could be recovered. India demands a switch from ‘Nirav Modi (silent Modi) to ‘Bol Modi’ “.

Later, taking to Twitter, the Congress leader said ‘Fleece,Flee and  Fly’ is the ‘Mantra’ of Fraudsters in Modi Government.

Ujjain, July 7 : Former chief minister and Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath arrived here for ”Darshan” of Mahakal before the start of his campaign for the mini-midterm elections involving 24 assembly seats in the state.

The Ujjain visit was due on July 3 but was washed out due to heavy rains.

There are striking similarities between his present campaign and the one he led in 2018 to bring the Congress back into power after 15 years. He had started the campaign with a ”pooja” at Ujjain. The key difference of course is the absence of Jyotiraditya Scindia, who blindsided him and his departure with a big chunk of the party caused the current campaign. Scindia was the campaign convener then.

Kamal Nath has few more pilgrimages lined up in the next few days before he gets to the war-room to be set up in Gwalior, the Scindia bastion.

Shortly after the ”pooja” and meeting with the party colleagues, Kamal Nath left for Badnawar to address the first rally — ”Loktantra Bachao” (save democracy) rally.

Though Scindia and former Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh were the senior leaders in the party, Jyotiraditya was presented as the youth face to draw the electorate. Singh was asked to bring about patch up between various factions. Kamal Nath was thus the key campaigner. He retains that status. Kamal Nath who drew good crowds in 2018 under Shivraj Chouhan”s rule has made a striking start with Ujjain Congress leaders responding in large numbers despite the lockdown curbs. The temple town, once part of the Gwalior state has responded with hundreds of billboards greeting him.

Kamal Nath plans to list the achievements of his party and development works during the 15-month rule to seek return to power.

Kamal Nath held a one-on-one discussion with prospective candidates to set the selection process rolling. The party plans to have 24 call centres, one in each constituency that will witness the by-elections. The party workers will receive voters” feedback and inputs for the prospective candidates and the agenda to be set on local issues. The same strategy will be adopted in all 24 constituencies this time also.

Unlike in 2018 when the main war room was at Bhopal, the party is expected to hire a bungalow in Gwalior where Kamal Nath plans to move to lead the campaign.
