The Janata Dal (United) (JDU) has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of being involved in a scam where they purchased lands in Bihar by cash and below the circle rate which is a criminal offence.
JD (U) leader Rajiv Ranjan questioned the desperation shown by the saffron party in advance of the demonetisation announcement.
"Yesterday, Sushil Modi said that all transactions were done through the RTGS, but the evidences we presented, clearly state that there were cash transactions also and the BJP has bought lands below the circle rate which is a crime," he said.
"This is a big scam.
BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on Saturday claimed that his party sends every detail of its spending to the income tax authorities and any purchase of land is made through cheques or RTGS and there is no involvement of cash.
"BJP provides every details of its spending to the income tax; any purchase of land is through cheque/RTGS, not cash," Sushil Kumar Modi said.
