New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday questioned former finance minister P. Chidambaram about the scams that took place in the Congress-led UPA government and demanded an explanation for the same.
“If Chidambaram is criticising the demonetisation move and saying that Prime Minister Modi should accept his mistake, then does he believe that whatever happened between 2004 and 2014 under the Congress-led UPA government, were all in the national interest?” asked BJP leader Nalin Kohli.
He further added that the former finance minister must first give an explanation before seeking one from others.
“First, he should give an explanation as to how black money got generated in the UPA government and what was their role in its generation. After giving an explanation to this, he can demand one from others,” Kohli added.
Earlier today, Chidambaram said that Prime Minister Modi should admit that demonetisation had a flawed decision which has badly hit the people.
“Demonetisation is a measure which made 45 crore people like beggars and hassled middle class people for 45 days,” he said.
