New Delhi, November 29: Amid the ongoing demonetization drive Prime Minister Narendra Modi in order to ensure complete transparency has asked all Bhartiya Janata Party MPs and MLAs to provide the details of their bank accounts from November 8 to December 31 on Tuesday. PM has asked ministers to provide details to party President Amit Shah before 1st January.
The opposition parties have been raising questions about the intentions of the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party. Home Minister Rajnath Singh in the parliament said that if the opposition wanted the Prime Minister for a discussion or a debate, then Pm will definitely intrude.
Opposing the drive initiated by Modi AAP chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that details of transactions made before six months of the announcement should also be revealed. He also said that PM Modi’s friends like Adani, Ambani and Paytm should also provide their details.
Opposition leaders have earlier accused PM Modi of informing his associates about the demonetisation scheme before announcing it officially.
PM announced demonetisation policy on November 8 under which old Rs 500 and 1,000 currency notes were made void. The government issued new currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 and the people were given a window of 50 days to exchange their old currency notes for new.
Demonetisation drive is to tackle the problem of hoarding black money in the form of cash and circulation of counterfeit currency. Government is been facing harsh criticism on this decision for quite a long time.
