CHANDIGARH: National Convener of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday made the Swiss Bank accounts of Punjab Congress president Capt Amarinder Singh and his family, public, where he allegedly amassed huge wealth when he was chief minister of Punjab (2002-2007).

Addressing a gathering of people in Kotshamir near Bathinda on the second day of his 11 days tour, Kejriwal revealed the bank accounts detail of Singh’s wife Parneet Kaur, former union minister who had opened bank accounts in the Swiss bank in 2005 under the account number  509018445.

Captain’s son Raninder Singh has also opened his account in the Swiss bank on the same day with the account number 5090184484, Kejriwal said while also revealing that besides these accounts, they had also formed a trust “where the family has been amassing their ill-gotten money.” The trust was being operated under the account number 5090284483, he added.

Kejriwal also openly challenged Amarinder that if any information he had revealed was found to be wrong, Singh is free to file a defamation case against him and send him to jail.

Making a scathing attack on Amarinder, Kejriwal said that Singh before coming into power in 2002, had gone bankrupt and did not have enough money even to get his Moti Mahal whitewashed.

Within three years after coming to power, he (Captain) and his family opened accounts in the Swiss bank, where the family member used to transfer a huge sum of money every month, Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal also challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, if he had the will and mettle to bring out the black money stashed in these foreign bank accounts by Amarinder Singh and his family.

“Instead of going after the poor people and the common man, PM should go after people like Amarinder Singh to bring back the black money stashed in foreign accounts”, he said.

On Kejriwa’s enquiry regarding the impact of demonetisation, maximum public responded that they were being hugely harassed due to dictatorial demonetisation by Modi. 

“Badals during the last 10 years of misrule amassed huge money due to their control over almost all businesses including Transport, Cable, Mining, and Liquor among others,” Kejriwal said. 

“After coming to power, we will set up an enquiry ocmmission to investigate Badals’ illegalities and get them enquired and punish them as per law of land,’’ he added.

Meanwhile, accusing Arvind Kejriwal of acting as Union finance minister Arun Jaitley’s ‘paid agent’, Punjab Congress president Capt Amarinder Singh ridiculed his attempt to once again rake up the fabricated and politically motivated charges of the existence of Swiss bank accounts in the names of his (Amarinder’s) family members by releasing old and unauthenticated documents.

Amarinder questioned Kejriwal over using an election rally platform in Bathinda to recycle and release old documents alleging Swiss accounts of his family members, instead of facing the media on the issue. He said it was more than evident that the AAP leader had no answers to the questions the media would definitely have raised following the release of the documents.  That alone could explain his decision to release the documents at a public rally, where he could not be questioned, said Amarinder.

Captain Amarinder said the alleged account numbers which the AAP leader says are held by his family members were the same old numbers which his colleague Ashish Khetan had released in March 2016, and which he had already proved to be a sham.
