Prime Minister Narendra Modi maybe describing his demonetisation initiative as “kadak chai” for the poor and not suiting the rich, but this was more of a poison for the “aam aadmi”, said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday. Participating in a one-day special session of the Delhi Assembly, Kejriwal accused the Prime Minister of protecting his “corporate friends” and exploiting the poor. “He has been claiming that the decision is an attack on black money, but it is an attack on common people. He is protecting his friends. These businessmen pay Prime Minister Modi and in response the Prime Minister ensures that the income tax department does not conduct raids on these businessmen’s house,” Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal further alleged that when the Prime Minister Modi was Gujarat’s Chief Minister, he took bribe from the Aditya Birla Group firm. “On 15 October 2013, the income tax department conducted raid on Shubendu Amitabh’s house. He was the president of the group executive of Aditya Birla Group. His Blackberry phones, laptop everything was thoroughly checked. They found a ledger entry in his laptop stating that on 16 November 2012, the Gujarat Chief Minister was paid money,” he said.

“For the first time in history of independent India, a sitting PM’s name has come in black money transactions,” he added. He alleged that the when the I-T department filed an appraisal report on the same, the Congress-led UPA regime, at the time, deliberately did not take action against Prime Minister Modi.

“This raid happened in 2013. The Congress was in power. But they should have initiated action given that Narendra Modi was projected as Prime Minister’ face for BJP. Then it means that the BJP and Congress had deals between them. They must have thought that once Narendra Modi becomes the PM, he will help them in the Robert Vadra case,” Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal also urged the central government to rollback the demonetisation drive which has adversely affected the common man. Earlier in the day, the Delhi Government passed a resolution asking President Pranab Mukherjee to direct the Centre to withdraw the “draconian” demonetisation scheme.

“This assembly resolves to urge upon the Honourable President of India to take necessary steps to institute a high-level probe to be monitored by the Honourable Supreme Court of India to look into the allegations that the scheme is fraud on the nation and that it has been launched to benefit a particular political party through its agents in black money,” the resolution stated.

    If this shameless Khujli, Pappu etc. donot find a bucket of water to drown their heads, people can provide them.Khujli wasting people's hard earned money like this will not go unpunished. He will be chased naked in streets of Delhi by the people and he with his stooges of AAP will have to account for each pie. His native state Haryana is hanging its head to feel that such a stupid jiker was born there and his antics put them to shame.

                      Well, to say the least i have been to villages in the Northern states Haryana, Punjab, UP and Bihar post demonetisation. You say disconnect, but I see people defending Modi in villages as well. I don't know if the step was right or wrong, only time can tell, but PM Modi has support from people in India whether rich or poor. I say this from personal experience and interaction and without any umptions

                                MR. Kejriwal, you are the CM OF DELHI. Have little bit sense. How many times SC REJECTED THE SAHARA *and BIRLA CASES. WHY ARE YOU BASELESSLY CHARGING AGAINST PM.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;SPEAK ABOUT THE CONCERNS OF COMMON MAN. INCREASE N PETROL / DIESEL / OTHER CUEL INSPITE OF LOW INTERNATIONAL PRICES EVEN TODAY COMPARED TO UPA PERIOD. ARUN JAITLY DID A BER IN IMPOSING PETROL DIESEL TO PROETCT RELIANCE. THIS HE CANNOT DENY. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;TAXINGT FUEL IS RESTRICTING MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE AND GOOODS. DO NOT TAX PETROL ; DIESEL ADDTIONALLY. CHARGE AS PER ACTUAL DO NOT IMPOSE EXCE BURDEN AND DO NOT ASK PEOPLE TO PAY. IT IS TOTALLY UNJUSTIFIANBLE.

                                    Kejri and Rahul and their followers supposed represent the wonderfully tolerant, democratic and liberal India. It is apparent from the way they accuse, allege and then contort and slither. It is apparent from the way they indulge in name calling. It is apparent from their inability to accommodate a contrarian view point.

                                      He speaks in embly because he is aware that he can speak anything there and no one can file a case of defamation against him. Dare he speak all this non sense outside , he knows there would a hundred cases coming behind him. That itself proves that whatever he is speaking is a lie and is only for the sake of politics. So Get your facts clear who is the Lion.
