West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi why should BJP MPs and MLAs 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.
"We are taking this people's movement to Patna tomorrow at Gardani Bagh Dharnasthal, 1 pm," she said in another tweet.
The prime minister has asked the 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 to them at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting came following allegations by the opposition parties that the BJP had "tipped off" some of its leaders ahead of the demonetisation announcement.
