The Aam Aadmi Party-dominated Delhi Assembly on Tuesday passed a resolution at a special session of the Delhi Assembly urging the President to direct the Centre to immediately roll back the demonetisation of high-value notes.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi took Rs 25 crore as bribe from a corporate when he was the Gujarat chief minister. He demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the allegations that the demonetisation scheme has been launched to benefit a particular political party.
He also demanded an inquiry into the bribery allegation.

The session saw stormy proceedings and had to be adjourned for 15 minutes soon after Kejriwal tabled the resolution, amid sloganeering against Prime Minister
Narendra Modi by ruling AAP MLAs.

Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta was marshalled out of the Assembly for disrupting the CM’s speech.

Launching a scathing attack on the Modi, Kejriwal said he is the prime minister of the rich and enemy of the poor. He said that Modi had taken a bribe to the tune of Rs 25 crore in his position as the Gujarat chief minister.

“Modi is the prime minister of the rich and his friends. He is the enemy of the poor. The Income Tax department had conducted a raid at the office of Aditya Birla Group in 2012-13. When questioned, the accountant said that he received the money in the form of hawala and gave it to Subhendu Amitabh, who is the group executive president of the Aditya Birla Group,” Kejriwal said.

He said that when the documents of the company were scrutinised, it showed that Rs 25 crore and 12 guns were given to CM Gujarat. On questioning, Subhendu Amitabh said that the money was received from Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals, the AAP leader said.

Kejriwal claimed the IT department gave its report and said that the answers received were unsatisfying and evasive. He also accused the Congress of being a party to the crime with BJP and so no action was taken even after a report given by the IT department.

“The Congress government did not take any action because they were scared that the BJP would come in power and probe against Robert Vadra,” he said.

Highlighting the plight of the common people, the CM said that several people have been dying by committing suicide because of the tension to meet the expenses of their daughter’s marriage. But Modi’s rich friends are not affected by this, he said.

“I read in the paper that Janardhan Reddy’s daughter is getting married and Rs 500 crore is being spent for the occasion. However, he was not seen standing in the queue neither he is under any kind of pressure to gets the notes exchanged. Where is he getting the cash from,” questioned Kejriwal.

The CM said that people should be given a month’s time and the government should come out with the proper planning. “The people should be given time and we will support the government to fight corruption and eradicate black money. If this is not done then the entire economic condition of the country will go downhill,” he said.
