BJP’s youth wing to conduct opinion poll on black moneyApril 2nd, 2009 - 11:38 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 2 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) youth wing Thursday announced it would conduct an opinion poll at 10,000 crossings across the country on the issue of black money on April 6.
The party will hold its ‘Swiss bankon mein jama Bharatiya kale dhan ke virudh aap ke mat’ opinion poll at 100 crossings in Delhi.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) at the BJP headquarters under the chairmanship of youth wing president Amit Thakkar.
The BJP’s senior leader L.K. Advani had Sunday asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to raise at the G-20 summit the issue of Indian money stashed in foreign banks and promised to look into the problem of black money if his party came to power.
“In Delhi at 100 crossings, polling will be conducted in a formal way. The people will be given ballot paper and be asked whether they are aware that the country’s black money is deposited in Swiss banks, and whether they agree with the BJP’s and Advaniji’s opinion that it needs to be brought back to India,” said BJYM Delhi state president Anuj Sharma.
