The number of bank scams that have taken place during the Modi government’s time; never before had so many scams taken place under any government since independence, Mr Kejriwal claimed at his party’s ‘Save Haryana’ rally here. “I want to ask PM Narendra Modi, if people of this country want to deposit their hard-earned money, which bank is safe? What if the bank goes bankrupt and all the money of the public is gone,” he said, taking a jibe.
“Second question I want to ask Mr Modi is that Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi escaped with thousands of crores. When will they be arrested? When will we get our money back?” he continued.
Mr Kejriwal said if the money goes into the pockets of farmers, labourers, only then the country will progress. It will not progress if the money goes into the pockets of a capitalists, he said claiming the “BJP is a party of capitalists”.
