The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has slammed BJP for the failed demonetisation drive which slapped currency crunch on crores of Indians.
AAP has demanded a probe into the five year transactions of all public representatives (MPs and MLAs) by appointing an Independent Committee (IC) .
AAP’s National Spokesperson, Ashish Khetan has said that BJP National President Amit Shah had prior knowledge about the proposed demonetisation drive which he used to buy property with ‘black money’.
“He should be tried for cheating and criminal breach of trust,” Ashish Khetan demanded.
AAP leader said t hat Prime Minister Narendra Modi has perpetrated the biggest scam in the history of India through the Note Ban and has cheated our citizens on multiple levels. His latest announcement of an inquiry of BJP MPs and MLAs from 8 November by BJP President Amit Shah is the biggest insult as Amit Shah himself was complicit in converting black money through land deals.
“The various land deals done by the BJP across the country, just before the note ban prove that the Prime Minister had alerted his partymen and cronies about the note ban. The Aam Aadmi party demands that there should be and independent and fair inquiry committee set up that will investigate 5 year banking and land transactions of all people’s representatives, not just the BJP MPs and MLAs. More important there should be an inquiry into the party funds of each party. If the land deals and election funding of all parties is probed then the whole country will see the real truth about black money,” Ashish Khetan said.
Ashish Khetan said that “Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP Party President themselves were involved in converting BJP’s black money to land through various deals in Bihar, Kerala, Rajasthan, and Orissa.”
Aam Aadmi Party’s national spokesperson and Delhi Convenor Dilip Pandey said “When the Prime Minister was sworn in he took an oath to safeguard secrecy. However, by letting his party persons and cronies know about the note ban before hand and helping them convert their black money safely, Narendra Modi has broken his oath. The media has revealed that all state units were asked to buy land by Amit Shah in writing and he also provided the money for the deal through various means – cash, demand drafts and cheques. The state BJP leaders were merely the authorized signatories but the mastermind was Amit Shah.
AAP for an independent probe into allegations
If the Prime Minister is really serious about getting rid of black money then we would like to pose a few points:
· Constitute a free, fair and independent committee of reputed persons which should investigate not just BJP MPs and MLAs but of all parties.
· The scope of inquiry should be all the banking and land transaction of all people’s representatives for the last 5 years.
· The committee should also inquire the land deals of the BJPs done just before the Note Ban.
· The committee should also investigate those corporate that are extremely close to the Prime Minister like PayTM, BigBazaar, RelianceJio who may have been alerted earlier as they seem to be direct beneficiaries of the Note Ban.”
BJP leaders converted black money to white
AAP National Spokesperson Raghav Chadha said during the press conference “BJP leaders were able to convert their black money before the note ban because Prime Minister Narendra Modi has alerted them in advance, and has thus betrayed the trust of the nation. Just before 8 November BJP West Bengal Unit deposited crores of cash in their account – account No 554510034. If that was not proof enough, then came the land deals of Amit Shah where he clearly instructed state units to complete the land deals before 7 November”
“We are placing before the public Amit Shah’s letter authorized state unit members to make these land deals. Land was purchased in 5 places in Bihar, 4 places in Orissa and in Kota in Rajasthan, and the deals were all done just prior to the note ban with substantial amount of cash transactions. The Aam Aadmi Party demands that there should be a case registered against Amit Shah of cheating and criminal breach of faith. Asking Amit Shah to inquire into the transactions of BJP MPs and MLAs is an insult to the intelligence of this nation,” Raghav Chadha said.
