New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre looted the people’s money by banning the notes of ₹500 and ₹1,000 denominations during demonetisation in 2016, alleged senior Congress party leader Kapil Sibal today.
Congress leader Kapil Sibal alleged that the Election Commission is not taking any action against the ruling BJP despite the many cases of poll code violation reported against them. Congress party also showed a video, claiming it was an expose on currency exchange conducted by the government after demonetisation.
Sibal said that the exchange was conducted by a special team drawn from officials from all departments and it was headed by BJP chief Amit Shah. Under it, currency from various ministers and business houses were brought in planes to Hindon air base from where it was taken to the Reserve Bank – at a charge of 35 to 40 per cent.
Asking the government to investigate the matter and arrest those seen in the video, he said,
“The alacrity with which the Enforcement Directorate (ED) searches people, it can arrest these people (featured in the video) and tell the country what the truth is.”
