BHUBANESWAR: The Congress on Friday sought to know from Prime Minister Narendra Modi the amount of black money that has returned to the exchequer because of demonetisation.
The PM should clarify how much black money has returned to the country, spokesperson of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Sanjay Jha told mediapersons here. Alleging that the PM has taken no steps against those whose names are in the Panama papers, Jha said this proves the sympathy that Modi has for black money hoarders.
Former president of West Bengal Congress Committee and Rajya Sabha member Pradip Bhattacharya said when the country is passing through a grave crisis because of demonetisation, the PM has sought more time for normalisation of the situation even after 50 days. President of Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) Prasad Harichandan, AICC secretary Subhonkar Sarkar and several other leaders were present.
