Amid allegations that many were tipped off about notes ban, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked BJP MPs and MLAs to submit details of their bank account transactions between November 8 and December 31. The ministers have been asked to submit the details to party president Amit Shah by January 1.

Reacting to this, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter and said details of transactions made before six months of the announcement should also be revealed.

Kejriwal, who is among those claiming BJP members were aware of the demonetisation move, said account details of “PM Modi’s friends like Adani, Ambani and Paytm” should also be obtained.

The prime minister had announced demonetisation policy on November 8 under which old Rs 500 and 1,000 currency notes were made invalid. The government issued new currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 and the people were given a window of 50 days till December 30 to exchange their old currency notes for new.

The decision, as per the government, has been taken to tackle the problem of hoarding black money in the form of cash and circulation of counterfiet currency. However, the government is also facing sharp criticism from opposition parties because of the “lack of planning” and “poor implementation” of the policy.

Further details are awaited

      How naive to even think that they will submit all their accounts and even to suggest that the kala dhan of politicians are in bank accounts... Another white washing attempt

            Actually, there are serious allegations that BJP members were in the know about the demonetisation move about six months earlier. So to lt;br/gt;repel these doubts, Modi should ask his MPs and MLAs to declare details of all their financial transactions before six months of the demonetisation.

                        Beginning of a new era in Indian democracy - moving away from "Ma Bap" policy: take responsibility if you are n a responsible position. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It will definitely put pressure on others to behave before the public, although many are still failing to understand the depth of the message!

                          Can the Most Corrupt party, which looted the country to the core throufg mega scams like 2G, Coalgate, CWG, National Herals, Agusta, etc, ask its MPs and MLAs to declare their bank transactions? Never. The family owned party boss, Italy Madam would be first to oppose this, as she might have both Indian and Italian accounts. The Prince has accounts in Europe.

                                    Ridiculous. How about giving funding details of loksabha elections? How about implementing strong lokpal bill?

                                      Meanwhile Amit Shah has also been promoted to the combined post of Director General of CBI, ED, IT, and Raw.

                                        These gujjus are looting the nation and openly. At least congress looted secretly, with some fear. We did it forget Gali Janardham Reddy of Bangalore from BJP, is free and poor people are standing in lines in front of the banks.
