Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday levelled serious charges of corruption on Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the emergency session of Delhi Assembly over demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000. Arvind Kejriwal accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of accepting black money from Aditya Birla Group to clear their project. Arvind Kejriwal also called for an immediate roll back of the demonetisation decision which has led to cash chaos across the country and a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the entire exercise.
Mr Kejriwal’s accusations are based on a tax raid on the offices of the Aditya Birla Group in 2013. The Chief Minister said that according to a tax department report after the raid, laptops and phones belonging to the then president of the conglomerate were studied and this entry was found: “Gujarat CM-25 Crore (12 done rest?)”.
“Hence, it clearly suggested, a payment of Rs. 12 crore to the then Gujarat Chief Minister was made,” said Mr Kejriwal.
