Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday took a jibe at Centre and Prime Minister Narendra Modi by terming demonetization as a conspiracy of BJP.
“People of Uttar Pradesh who made Narendra Modi the PM, will now teach BJP a lesson for the anti-people step”, Kejriwal said.
The AAP leader at a rally in Lucknow alleged that “the step is aimed at depositing money of ordinary people in banks to improve their financial condition and to waive loans of people like Vijay Mallya. It has been done to help big industrialists, who have taken loans of over Rs 8 lakh crore from banks”.
Calling the note ban as anti-people, Kejriwal said, “People of UP, from where BJP got 73 (out of 80) Lok Sabha seats (including two of ally Apna Dal) will now teach BJP a lesson for the conspiracy.”
Kejriwal went on alleging BJP over record corruption in the country, adding that not only the step and intentions but execution was also bad.
He also questioned the claims of Modi government asking that if demonetisation was a step to curb black money why not a single person was jailed when the government had a list of people who had stashed away money in foreign banks.
