In yet another attacking tweet, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "speak up" on the multi-crore PNB fraud case that involved billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi.
Taking on to Twitter, Rahul said, "PM Modi tells kids how to pass exams for two hours but won't speak for two minutes on the 22,000 crore banking scam," while referring to Prime Minister Modi's 'Pariksha Pe Charcha' event.
He said, "Mr Jaitley is in hiding".
He accused the entire government of not owning up to their responsibility and acting guilty.
"Stop behaving as if you're guilty! Speak up," he added.
He further went on to claim that PM Modi has robbed the country.
The PNB detected a Rs 114 billion scam in which jeweller Nirav Modi acquired fraudulent letters of undertaking from one of its branches for overseas credit from other Indian lenders.
The scam was started in 2011 and was detected in the third week of January this year, after which the PNB officials reported it to the concerned agencies.
