The BJP hit back at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over his allegations that demonetisation of high currency notes was a “huge scam”, on Saturday, saying the AAP was siding with the “black money hoarders”. “Allegations of Arvind Kejriwal are not taken seriously by anybody today because he does not owe any responsibility to people to offer any proof for probe of these allegations,”BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said. “Every allegation made (by Kejriwal) today is completely baseless,” he said, adding Kejriwal, who claims that he is against corruption and black money hoarders, has shifted to the “other side”.

“Kejriwal is standing today with the black money hoarders,” he charged. The Delhi Chief Minister is criticising a move which has largely been hailed as a “reform and a frontal attack on corruption and black money,” he added. “Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party also seem to have become a victim of the surgical strike on corruption and black money,” Rao said. Kejriwal had charged that the demonetisation move was a “huge scam”, alleging BJP had told all its “friends” about it much before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement and demanded immediate roll back of the demonetisation.

To substantiate his claim, he alleged that a BJP leader was seen with new notes of Rs 2,000 on social media, days before the Prime Minister announced withdrawing high value currency. Responding to this allegation, the BJP spokesperson said, “Kejriwal does not have anything to substantiate, he is not only crying about loss of his public image because of his own undoing but also crying a lot about political and financial bankruptcy as a result of the reform measures.”

Rao also alleged that Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party had “stopped” giving information about the people who are donating money for their party, adding that, “it has gone completely off their website. AAP finances are completely hazy.”

          It is surprising, ex-IRS man Kejriwal is not able to understand simple laws of economics. De-monetisation is taught in economics text books.

                        केजरीवाल कुछ भी कहें. जब तक बीजेपी २०००० रुपये से कम का नगद चंदा लेना बंद नहीं करती तब तक वो भ्रष्ट जन पार्टी बनी रहेगी

                          जब तक व्यापारियों, कंपनियों या अन्य व्यक्तियों के ५००० रुपये से ऊपर के नगद लेन देन और नगद खरीदारी पर रोक नहीं लगती तब तक भ्रष्टाचार ख़तम नहीं हो सकता. पुराने नोट ख़तम करके केवल कुछ राज्यों में विपक्षी पार्टियों को खर्च के लिए परेशान किया जा सकता है और इसके आलावा कुछ नहीं क्योकि अब नए नोट से भ्रष्टाचार होगा. नगद लेन देन पर रोक लगाने तथा इसके साथ ही राजनितिक पार्टियों द्वारा २०००० रुपये से कम का नगद चंदा लेना भी बंद करना होगा तभी कुछ हो सकता है .

                                BJP misses the basic point of the AAP and dodges to answer the corruption of the BJP that entailed inthis nefarious proclamation. That is: informing all the Black Marketeers and its leadership of BJP to take care of the Black Stuff before they are caught in their scheme of hurting the opponents in the coming elections. BJP has saved its black money for the impending election. It is a trickery Modi Baba has inflicted on those, especially, of the SP and BSP Election Plans; and that of Badals and BJP Kalias of Punjab That is the point of Mr. Kejriwal with regard to the demonetisation at this juncture
