Rahul Gandhi Hyderabad, Apr. 11 (ANI): Determined to prove that the Congress has a clean image, party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi has promised to set up an inquiry into the BJP allegations that the party had salted away lakhs and crores of rupees into Swiss banks.

“You elect us. We will order an inquiry,” Rahul Gandhi said at an election rally in Qutbullahpur, Andhra Pradesh.

Gandhi claimed that the BJP would forget their promises of unlocking the money from Swiss bank accounts because they know there was no such money anywhere.

“They are raking up the issue only to derive political benefit,” Gandhi said.

The BJP has alleged that the UPA Government had failed to unearth the money deposited in Swiss banks ranging from 25 to 70 lakh crore rupees.

The BJP further criticized the UPA for remaining silent on its demand since the money stashed overseas belonged to Congress politicians. (ANI)
