Mamata questions PM over BJP members submitting a/c details

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Chief Minister today questioned Prime Minister Modi why should MPs and MLAs submit their account details only for the post-period and not since the 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 (TMC) supremo, who addressed a rally in today demanding rollback of the demonetisation, will address a meeting in tomorrow.

"We are taking this people's movement to tomorrow at Gardani Bagh Dharnasthal, 1 pm," she said in another tweet.

The prime minister has asked the MPs and MLAs to submit their account details between November 8, the day he announced demonetisation, and December 31 to party chief on January 1, 2017.

Modi's direction to them at the Parliamentary Party meeting came following allegations by the opposition parties that the BJP had "tipped off" some of its leaders ahead of the announcement.
