New Delhi: Demanding revocation of demonetisation order by the Modi government, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal termed the whole affair as a 'big scam' and alleged that many BJP leaders were aware of the decision beforehand.

'' It is a matter of probe that how the huge amount of cash in the Rs 1000 notes was deposited in the banks from July to September " Kejriwal said at a press conference," He went on to allege that a BJP leader in West Bengal had deposited a big sum in the bank hours before the demonetisation of old rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes was announced.

This move was a major scam executed by the Modi government which facilitated some leaders and businessmen to safeguard their black money by leaking the information.'' PM before announcing the move had informed all his leaders who had black money and suggested to secure their money," he charged.

What else he said?

  • The decision of demonetisation is not a surgical strike against black money but a surgical strike against the savings of the common people.
  • People who have stashed black money in Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes are exchanging the notes in the form of dollars, which is being sold at Rs 120 in Delhi.
  • Gold is being sold at Rs 60,000 in black market in the state.
  • Those who are involved in the black marketing of the old currency notes are hand in glove with BJP people.
