Bathinda:AAP’s national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday accused Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh and his family of having “ill-gotten money” stashed in Swiss bank accounts, a charge strongly rejected by the former Chief Minister.
Kejriwal, who is on a Punjab tour in connection with the coming assembly polls, alleged that the entire family of Amarinder stashed “huge ill-gotten” money in these bank accounts when he was the Chief Minister of Punjab from 2002 to 2007.
However, Amarinder hit back at Kejriwal, accusing the Delhi CM of acting as Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s “paid agent” and ridiculed his attempt to once again rake up the “fabricated and politically motivated charges” of the existence of Swiss bank accounts in the names of his (Amarinder’s) family members by releasing “old and unauthenticated documents”.
Addressing a gathering on the second day of his 11-day tour, Kejriwal made public what he claimed to be the details of bank accounts of Preneet Kaur, a former Union minister, and her son Raninder Singh, who had allegedly opened bank accounts in Swiss bank in 2005, when Amarinder was the Chief Minister of Punjab.
Kejriwal alleged that they had also formed a trust to transfer their ill-gotten money.
The Delhi CM challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, if he had the “will and guts” to bring out the black money stashed in these foreign bank accounts by Amarinder and his family.
Kejriwal told the media that it must look at the people who have been raising their both hands against demonetisation instead of reporting “false facts and misleading reports” that people are happy due to demonetisation.
The AAP national convener took a dig at Amarinder’s announcement of giving smart phones and described it as the “biggest joke” on the people of Punjab.
