New Delhi: The Congress on Friday accused the Narendra Modi government of not acting against fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi despite having evidence and asked what was stopping the NDA from initiating action.
Party spokesperson Pawan Khera addressing a press conference said the countryâs watchman is asleep and is snoozing while Nirav Modi is globe-trotting and opening new companies in London and elsewhere after fleeing from the country.
âToday is âworld sleep dayâ, as the Congress party shall expose how Prime Minister Modi i.e., âdesh ka chowkidarâ and his government slept and snoozed while âchhota Modiâ i.e., Nirav Modi looted crores, fled the country, posed with the prime minister, globe trotted the world, opened a new diamond business in London which have a Panama Papers connection,â the Congress spokesperson said.
âSimple question is , if the Congress party can expose this entire chain of events and trace this trail, why did the CBI, ED, SFIO and other investigating agencies of the Modi government could not do it after 14 months of his escape,â he asked.
The Congress leader also alleged a clear-cut case of criminal complacency, complicity and connivance by Modi government with Nirav Modi.
âIf all these linkages, connection and nexuses could be traced by the Congress party based on information in public domain, then what prevents the Narendra Modi government to connect the dots and take action against Indiaâs most wanted,â he asked.
