New Delhi: Delhi chief minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal levelled the allegations against BJP government for informing their associates about the demonetisation of high values currency a week before. Kejriwal alleged that keeping the upcoming UP polls in mind, BJP government played this card.
Kejriwal questioned the logic behind the introduction of Rs 2000 notes saying it will fan corruption and the black money economy instead of containing it and that demonetisation has hit the common men hard.
Interestingly, Kejriwal’s Cabinet colleague Satyendar Jain supported the “historic” move to introduce Rs 2000 currency notes saying it will remove corruption and black money. “To remove corruption & Black money, decision to introduce Rs 2000 notes historic,” Jain tweeted.
The AAP chief, in a video message, said a racket of commissions was thriving across the country. The fault lies in their (government’s) intentions, Kejriwal said.
In a series of tweets, Kejriwal also took pot shots at an advertisement of Mobile payments firm ‘Paytm’ that featured Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image, saying the company was the biggest beneficiary of the move.
