Previous UPA government did not take any steps to check black money, says M Venkaiah Naidu.
Bengaluru: Holding the Congress, TMC and the Left parties are in-charge for Parliament logjam, Union urban development and poverty alleviation Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Friday dared the Opposition to come inside (Parliament) and depiction the government if they have any evidence. “If you are wise enough, you should come inside (Parliament) and expose. Then we will respond,” he said.
Hitting out AICC Vice-president Rahul Gandhi for his ‘Pay to Modi’ and ‘demonetization was foolish’ comments, Mr Naidu responded in his usual style of coming with one-liners replete with versification words.
He mocked Mr Gandhi and Opposition parties. “By creation noise outside Parliament, you (opposition parties) are displaying contempt for democracy. Your black day on Thursday was black money supporting day. You have every right to create indictments. You crossed all limits by hurling abuses at the Prime Minister. When you said Pay to PM Narendra Modi you are creating insinuations against the PM’s office which is an institution. I believe he is making such statements based on previous experience,” he said. He said the previous UPA did not take one steps to check black money.
Tamil Nadu politics
He said it was not correct to talk Tamil Nadu politics at this stage. “It is too early to discuss anything (about an alliance). Just now the last burials of Madam (Jayalalithaa) were performed. Secondly, there is no election now. There is no alignment. There is no realignment also now. Let us wait and see,” he said replying to a question.
