Provide bank details of BJP, MPs on bank transactions before

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

today demanded that Prime Minister Modi provide details of transactions of and its MPs made before November 8 when the move was announced if he was "really serious" on the issue.

The Congress' demand came after Modi, earlier in the day, asked MPs, Ministers and MLAs to submit their account statements between November 8, the day he announced the demonetisation, and December 31 to party chief on January 1, 2017.



"I was impressed with the prime minister for his move, because he knows if he asks the financial details of before November 8, then it will be a problem. That is the reason, he has asked the financial details after November 8.

"First tell us, payments to Shakhayee (units) made through which cheques? Tell us how much money was deposited by MPs and the party before November 8? Tell us what happened in and Bihar? If he tell us these, then I would feel that the prime minister is really serious on the issue," the party spokesperson said.

Stressing that he was "not levelling any charges" on BJP, Sibal said "I am only saying that if you need transparency, then you should tell how much money was deposited in MPs and party account before November 8."

On the issue of disruptions in Parliament, he said in a lighter vein, "this is what (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley has taught us. Please ask him. He has said disruption is part of parliamentary strategy otherwise the message does not go home. So, we are learning from the great parliamentarian."

He, however, clarified that the Opposition party was raising the people's issue.

"Eighty people have died due to this and we should sit quitely? This is not some alleged coal scam or alleged other scam, it is a scam where 80 lives have been lost and we should keep quiet? We should make an open statement, according to BJP, that prime minister need not come to the Parliament?," he asked.
