PNB’S COMPLAINT NAILS BJP LIE, SAYS CONGRESS

FOLLOW US:

New Delhi  : Congress asserted that the latest Punjab National Bank’s complaint to the CBI nails the BJPs lie that the scam was going on since 2011 and so then Congress-led UPA government is responsible. Former Union Minister and senior advocate Kapil Sibal circulated the CBI’s new FIR registered on Feb 15 on the basis of PNB’s Feb 13 complaint that shows all 143 letters of undertaking (LoUs) were issued or renewed in 2017 and became payable in 2018.

LoUs are like bank guarantee with a time limit after which they lapse and as such there cannot be any outstanding one of the UPA time nor the PNB’s complaints show any, Sibal said.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi traced the “Rs 22,000-crore fraud” by absconding diamond czar Nirav Modi with the Punjab National Bank to the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 on November 8, 2016.
