Congress on Tuesday dubbed as yet another ‘jumla’ (gimmick) Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to party legislators to submit bank account details after demonetisation and dared him to make public all financial and land dealings of BJP and RSS in the last six months. Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said Modi’s move is also an attempt by him to deflect public attention from the alleged leakage of demonetisation decision, which he termed as the “biggest scam” in the country so far.

Surjewala along with party leader Sushmita Dev, accused BJP of buying properties in 18 districts of Odisha on the lines of those purchased from in Bihar.

“The manner in which revelations are coming out whereby BJP and its leaders are buying land in Odisha and Bihar, Modiji fears that all this will come out.

“All these things point out that there is need to hold a detailed probe into the alleged scam. There is need to hold a detail and thorough JPC probe into the matter,” he said.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi should stop doing theatrics and should stop hiding behind rhetoric. He should stop hiding behind ‘jumlas’. Modiji your real face stands exposed and time has come that you remove the ‘mask of jumlas’ and follow ‘Raj Dharma’.

“If you have nothing to hide, you should make public accounts of BJP and RSS and affiliate organisations six months prior to demonetisation,” he told reporters at AICC briefing.

The Congress media in-charge alleged that this is being done by Modi to divert the attention of public so that they do not ask details of accounts of his partymen before demonetisation.

Dev said, “Modi government has time and again deflected the attention of public from real issues. It is nothing but a sham and a hoax.”

Attacking Modi for bringing yet another scheme to “help black money hoarders legally convert their money”, he said, “The truth is that Narendra Modi is trying to give protection to black money holders and is devising new ways and means in doing so.”

“He is the new 50:50 PM who shares and grants concessions to black money holders,” he alleged.

Surjewala said, “the truth will come out as how much money was actually being changed from black to white, who had prior information of the demonetisation decision?”.

The Congress leader said Modi first brought out a fair and lovely scheme from June 1 to September 30, 2016 and then announced the ‘Tughlaqi decision of demonetisation’.

“When that did not work, now another new scheme under the name of ‘black money holder welfare scheme’ has been brought now. This is Modiji’s and his government’s pledge in fighting black money.

“To avoid any questions being raised, he brought this new bill in the form of a Money Bill which was passed amid din in Lok Sabha without holding a discussion,” he said.

Surjewala said by bringing the money bill in Lok Sabha and getting it passed today, amounted to “trampling of democracy” and was a “complete affront” on authority of country’s Parliament and Constitution.

                      Face expressions of Congees are worth watching now a days. They are making fun of themselves. Probably they have been trained to think like this for long. They simply have no clue of what really ticks with the voters.

                        If a common man ask that question to BJP, it makes sense, not the looters who looted the country for 60 years.

                                god has given you little brain but please make use of it .Blindly dont support BJP.,They are the most currupt people. As long as you view everything in unprejudised mind you may not understand anything,. According to many BJP which could spend over 60000 crores during 2014 Election could do anything and still get away with it. Their most of the leaders in Central Ministry are currupt and criminal background. Wake up my dear before it is too late

                                  When Congress leaders pointing out on Present PM point, first all the Congress MP who were elected and ruled during the period of 2004 to 2014 need to submit all their financial details including their family members. Then they have a right to ask.

                                    Baseless allegation since all land dealings were made by BJP out of duly accounted money.
