The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Kejriwal blamed the government for the deaths of nearly 40 people in the nation linked to the demonetisation move. "Who is responsible for these 40 deaths?" he asked.
He further alleged Prime Minister Narendra Modi of corruption. He mentioned that there was a time when he used to think that Narendra Modi too was an honest man. However, he went on to flash documents of the Income Tax department alleging that two corporate houses had paid huge bribes to PM when he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.
Kejriwal alleged the government hoped to collect Rs 10 lakh crore from people following the demonetisation to make up for the massive losses the banks have suffered by giving out whopping loans to corporate houses that have now become bad debts.
