Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday questioned Narendra Modi on why BJP MPs and MLAs should submit their bank account transaction details only for the post-demonetisation period and not since the NDA government came to power. “Why only account details from Nov 8? Just 3 weeks. Why not last 2 1/2 years all details ? PM Ji you think you alone are intelligent and the rest are… ??? After your 21 days of note bandi, the whole country is ghar bandi, so why this farce (sic),” she tweeted.
The PM has asked BJP MPs and MLAs to submit their bank account transaction details between November 8, the day he announced demonetisation, and December 31 to party chief Amit Shah on January 1, 2017. Modi’s direction came following allegations by the Opposition parties that BJP had “tipped off” some leaders ahead of the announcement.
Meanwhile, after holding a rally in Lucknow, Mamata, through a series of tweets in English Hindi, thanked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Samajwadi Party and the people of the state. “Thank u Lucknow & Uttar Pradesh.Thank u @yadavakhilesh @SamajwadiParty thanks to the women of UP for your presence in large numbers,” she tweeted.
“We are taking this people’s movement to Patna tomorrow at Gardani Bagh Dharnasthal, 1 pm,” she said in another tweet. ens
