Nitish takes jibe on Modi govt on black money
Patna: Janata Dal (United) today made a scathing attack on the Centre for not disclosing information about black money and said the election campaign on the issue by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was based on false promises.
“Before elections, BJP on top of its voice made promises that it will bring back black money in the country…what to talk about return of the black money now they are not even disclosing names of account holders,” senior JD(U) leader and former Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said in a facebook post.
Kumar’s snide remark followed the Union Government telling the Supreme Court yesterday that not all information about black money received from foreign nations could be made public.
Taking a jibe, Kumar said “If black money issue was a ‘Yogasan’ (yoga exercise) of Swami Ramdev? Was it an empty speech of Narendra Modi or thousands of crore worth ‘staple’ of BJP.”
“Whether it was an empty promise to get votes or ‘sirsasan’ (upsidedown yoga exercise) of Modi government which has gone back on its promises?” he said.
“Sari batein…jhoot ke dam par sasahan (all talks…coming to power on the basis of falsehood),” Kumar said.
