‘Advani should have brought back black money of BJP leaders’March 31st, 2009 - 10:51 pm ICT by IANS
Ahmedabad, March 31 (IANS) Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati Tuesday said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani should have brought back the black money of his own party leaders stashed in various banks abroad during his party’s rule.
Mayawati was addressing a poll rally here, two days after Advani asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to raise at the G-20 summit the issue of Indian money stashed in foreign banks.
Rather than demand formulation of a law for bringing back black money just before the country goes to polls, Mayawati said, Advani should have done something about it during the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
Addressing the rally at the Kankaria Football Ground in Maninagar to kick off the BSP’s Lok Sabha poll campaign in Gujarat, Mayawati said the BJP is the cousin of the Congress and both parties are responsible for India’s current economic woes.
“Both the BJP and Congress have framed economic policies dictated by the wealthy and even polls are contested on the wishes of the rich in the country,” said the Uttar Pradesh chief minister.
She said the poor in the country are becoming terrorists because of the faulty economic policies framed during the NDA and later during the UPA rule.
