Demonetisation a major scam, PM informed his friends beforehand: Arvind Kejriwal
Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday morning kicked off a storm over the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. He alleged that the whole move was a huge scam by the NDA government and that the BJP and some other players had been given prior information of the move.
“A huge scam has been perpetrated a few days ago in the name of tackling corruption,” Kejriwal alleged. “When the PM announced the move, he had informed all of his friends who had black money and they secured their money,” the Delhi CM added.
He further alleged that there had been significant misreporting on the money deposits made at banks. “In previous quarters, deposits in banks were negative. But in the July-to-September quarter, such large amounts were being deposited in the banks. Who did all this money belong to?” he asked.
“They are claiming that a lot on money will now come into the system. In the name of battling corruption, the only thing that is going to happen is that a lot of money is merely going to change hands. And for this, the people are being inconvenienced” Kejriwal said.
