In his speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a jibe at formation of bonding of opposition parties over Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as an MP.
Targeting the moving together of opposition parties to the Supreme Court against alleged use of central agencies, PM Modi called it a “coming together of the corrupt on one stage”.
“We have a strong foundation of constitutional institutions. That’s why to stop India, constitutional institutions are being attacked,” said the Prime Minister as BJP headquarters.
“Agencies are being attacked when they take action, questions are being raised in courts. Some parties have started ‘Bhrashtachari Bachao Abhiyan’,” he further said.
Mr Modi even said that his party will curb corruption with the help of data.
“Under PMLA (law against money laundering) during the Congress rule, a total of 5,000 crore was confiscated. But under the BJP, we have confiscated about 10,00,000 crore. Twenty thousand economic offenders who have fled, have been caught by us,” said PM Modi.
In seven decades it is the first time when such actions are being taken against corruption, he said. “When we will do so much, then some people will be upset and will be angry but the action against corruption won’t be stopped because of their (Opposition) false allegations,” said Mr Modi.
In last few years, opposition has frequently questioned the actions taken up by the Central investigative agencies against its leaders and finally before the second half of the budget session they came together to raise their voice.
Meanwhile, the opposition has filed a petition in Supreme Court alleging that the central agencies like Enforcement Directorate and Central Bureau of Investigation have only taken their action against opponents of BJP. The apex court is scheduled to hear the petition on April 15.
