The AaP Monday said PM Narendra Modi had failed to live up to his poll promise of bringing back black money stashed abroad.
“The Panama list has PM’s aide Gautam Adani’s elder brother Vinod Adani… There are others — Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, two BJP leaders and Congress leaders. BJP had screamed its lungs out on bringing back black money but Modi and (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley are quiet on this. There have been several exposes over the past two years but no action has been taken so far,” said AAP leader Sanjay Singh.
“AAP demands that just as in the case of coal, CWG and 2G scams, there should be a Supreme Court-monitored SIT to conduct a time-bound inquiry into Panama Papers leak. Considering the list involves Adani, it is unlikely that Modi government will probe the matter,” Singh said.
AAP leader Raghav Chadha said, “In February last year, ICIJ-The Indian Express had come out with the Swiss leaks, where 1,195 Indians were named…but no action has been taken. It is well known that Modiji is close to Gautam Adani. His brother Vinod Adani is named along with BJP leaders Shishir Bajoria and Anurag Kejriwal. We want to ask BJP, what action will they take?”
Chadha added: “Congress is not untouched by this… Sumita Singh, mother-in-law of (Indiabulls owner) Sameer Gehlaut, has been linked to Panama Papers.”
