Congress launches scathing attack over PM Narendra Modi’s silence on PNB fraud case

The Congress on Monday stepped up its attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for keeping mum on the multi-crore PNB scam. The Congress has alleged that accused Mehul Choksi has been close to PM Modi.

“5 days since India’s largest bank loot and PM Modi is a vow of silence. The nation needs answers, Mr. Prime Minister,” tweeted Congress on its official handle. Earlier, continuing his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over banking frauds, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that “saheb’s” (an allusion to Prime Minister Modi) silence over the scams betrays which side his loyalty lies.

The Congress president took to verse to ask where is the “chowkidar” (watchman) who used to say that he would neither indulge in corruption himself nor let others do, in the backdrop of the latest Rs 11,300-crore Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam that has diamantaire Nirav Modi at its center.

[First Lalit (Modi), then (Vijay) Mallya and now Nirav (Modi) too has fled/Where is the watchman who used to claim he would neither indulge in corruption himself nor let others do],” Gandhi tweeted. The public is eager to know the secret of saheb’s silence as his silence suggests where his loyalty lies,” he added.

On Sunday too, Gandhi had attacked the Prime Minister over his silence on the banking fraud involving Nirav Modi and urged the government to “speak up”. “Stop behaving as if you are guilty! Speak up,” Gandhi had said.

Nirav Modi fled the country just before the scam came to light. The ruling BJP and the Congress have been trading charges over who detected and acted against the banking fraud that dates back to 2011-12.

BJP Wins 47 Municipalities In Gujarat, Down From 59; Congress Gets 16

Gandhinagar : Gujarat’s ruling BJP won the most seats in municipal elections today, but has lost ground compared to the last elections five years ago. The party has won 47 of 75 municipalities for which elections were held; it had won 59 in 2013.

Chief rival Congress has won 16 municipalities, five more than the 11 it had won last time. It had lost five of them two years later, when its leaders defected to the BJP, and is claiming today’s result as a major gain. The party claimed that it also supported four Independents who have won and so its tally today is 20.

Six municipalities did not give a clear mandate to either party and the Congress has asserted that it will gather the support needed to form the municipal board in each of them.

The BJP’s loss of 12 municipalities comes just two months after the party posted its weakest performance in years in assembly elections held in December last. The party won a fifth straight term in power in Gujarat, but not before a scare as the Congress seemed to catch up several times when votes were being counted, eventually reducing the BJP’s margin of victory considerably.
