Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi “biggest patron” of black money, Congress on Friday said after his demonetisation decision went haywire, he was getting black money converted to white through the “so-called” welfare programmes for the poor.

“He is the biggest patron of black money...he is flouting all Income Tax rules to get black money converted into white using welfare schemes for the poor,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters in Lucknow.

He said the country wanted to know as to how much money has been deposited in the banks from April 1 to November 30 this year by BJP, its leaders and RSS functionaries.

Figures given by RBI pertaining to sudden additional deposits in banks in September give rise to suspicion that they were in the know of an impending note ban order, he claimed.

Surjewala demanded an apology from Modi for the deaths of people who stood in serpentine queues outside ATMs for hours together to withdraw their own money.
