Terming the allegations that demonetisation decision was already leaked as “totally absurd and mischievous”, Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday asked the parties to make it clear whether they are with the common man who is going to benefit from the move or corrupt and black money holders. “Unfounded allegation that this move has been leaked to some in the BJP is totally absurd and mischievous,” Naidu said, adding, “As the line of demarcation between the honest and dishonest is being clearly drawn in the country, some opposition parties are getting rattled and making absurd allegations.”

The comments come in the backdrop of Congress, AAP and some other parties accusing the Modi government of “selectively leaking” information about its demonetisation plans to some people and “favourite” corporate houses.

The Union Urban Development and Information and Broadcasting minister said that parties who lived by “corruption” and “electoral malpractices” all these years, cannot make such “baseless allegations” against the Modi government.

By now people have come to know the character of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said, adding they know that he will live up to the expectations of the people and to the election promise of rooting out corruption from public life.

“Parties who lived by corruption, opportunism, nepotism, greed, repression, electoral malpractices, self-seeking and sycophancy all these years, can’t make such baseless allegations against this government,” he said.

Naidu said such irresponsible allegations only expose such parties who are rattled by the consequences of the Government’s commitment to get to the bottom of corruption and black money.

“Instead of making constructive suggestions to help people overcome immediate inconveniences in drawing money, some parties are trying to cover up real intention of supporting corruption and black money in the name of hardship caused to people,” he alleged.

The government has taken several steps and is willing to take more as required to help people overcome the problems being faced now, Naidu said, adding that situation will become normal “very soon”.

If the objection of some parties is over the hardship caused to the people, they should behave in a “constructive manner”, he said, adding that they should convey their concerns instead of raking up a “malicious campaign”.

“Keeping in view the significant gains to the common man and the poor from the spirited actions of the governments, I would like to ask such parties to make it clear -If they are with the common man or with the corrupt and black money kings,” he asked.

      Please concentrate on the exchange of currency notes, gather the data from RBI on the value of transactions done in the various states during various dates and sue Kejriwal in court for deliberately misleading the people of the country, filing a white paper in court with the available details. Also, please release the call records of the BJP and RSS top br to show that no BJP and RSS leaders confided in Kejriwal about their opposition to the demonetisation and sue him in court for that defamation as well. Let us see what he comes up with next. I saw an article about him claiming CM Modi had taken a 25 cr bribe in 2013. I wonder what he will find next, some old doddering man who is now an AAP volunteer who remembers that it was Narendra Modi who hadn't returned change of 25 paise when he was selling chai as a youngster. I wish there was a way this blighter could be administered psychiatric treatment.

                By the end of this procedure if no MPs or Ministers are caught, then this would prove to be a useless endeavor. if Modi and Venkaiah truly intend on eradicating black money please make some heads roll in your party..
