NEW DELHI: With the Opposition stepping up its attack on the Centre over note demonetisation, the BJP on Saturday hit out at its rivals, accusing them of “political hypocrisy”.
Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi claimed the AAP and the Congress were indulging in “political hypocrisy” and had “lies as their passwords”.
The BJP reacted sharply after the AAP charged the NDA government with having “leaked” information about the demonetisation decision “to its friends”. Party spokesperson G V L Narsimha Rao claimed the Delhi chief minister was “siding with the black money hoarders”.
“Nobody takes the allegations of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal seriously. He does not owe any responsibility to offer any proof for his allegations. Every allegation made by him is completely baseless. Kejriwal is standing today with black money hoarders,” he said.
Naqvi said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had started a “revolution against black money”. The Congress and the AAP are trying to spread panic among the people as part of their vested interests, he alleged.
BJP chief Amit Shah on Friday sought to turn the tables on the party’s political rivals by seeking to make demonetisation appear to be an issue between “those supporting the black money and those opposing it”.
