New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi has once again slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the latter’s silence on a number of alleged scams unfolded in recent years.
Referring to Lalit Modi, Vijay Mallya, Nirav Modi in a tweet, Rahul made a parody to attack Modi.
Rahul said people of the country are eager to know the reason behind Modi’s silence over the scams.
The Congress chief has also referred to the PM as “Saheb” or “Boss”.
Rahul also took a dig at Modi’s slogan “Neither we will take bribe nor will allow others to take” which the PM used before 2014 General Elections.
Meanwhile, the Government on Friday announced that the passport of the fugitive billionaire Nirav Modi, the prime accused in the Rs. 11,292-crore Punjab National Bank fraud case, and his business partner Mehul Choksi have been cancelled for four weeks.
Modi, who is in the centre of a huge storm, reportedly left the country in January, much before the scam came to light. According to media reports, he is now in New York.
Meanwhile, Interpol has issued diffusion notice against Modi, his wife Ami, brother Nishal and partner Choksi.
While the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered two cases against Modi, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has reportedly seized gold and diamond worth Rs 5,500 crores from the searches conducted at 17 properties of the diamond merchant across India.
On February 14, the CBI received complaints from PNB, which detected a Rs 11,292 crore fraud involving Modi.
