Lucknow, July 1 :Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his continued silence over the black money issue and why NDA government is helpless in stopping the fraudsters from fleeing India.
“Why is PM silent on black money? Is it because most of those who deposit money abroad are close to BJP, that it has emerged as the wealthiest party of India”, BSP chief Mayawati said.
“People of the nation want to know why is the government, especially the Prime Minister, silent on black money? Is it because most of those people who deposit money abroad are those close to BJP, due to whom it has emerged as the wealthiest party of India in such short span of time?,” Mayawati asked in wake of the report that Money parked by Indians in Swiss banks rose over 50 per cent to CHF 1.01 billion (Rs 7,000 crore) in 2017, reversing a three-year downward trend amid India’s clampdown on suspected black money stashed there.v
Targeting PM Modi on Nirav Modi, Vijay Mallya, who has escaped from India with taxpayers’ money, Mayawati said, “Businessmen take the help of Indian banks to flourish their business and then flee after conning them to deposit their money outside. People in the country are wondering why is the Narendra Modi government so helpless when it comes to stopping them?.”
