At a time when the Narendra Modi led BJP government if facing attacks from opposition leaders including Arvind Kejriwal, Mamata Banerjee, the Congress and others, over allegations of ‘PM’s friends’ being aware of government’s demolition plan, the party has been left embarrassed by one of its own leaders.
This after a video clip emerged showing BJP MLA from Kota, Rajasthan, Bhawani Singh claiming that Mukesh Ambani and Gautam Adani had prior knowledge of the demonetisation of Rs 500 and 1,000 notes.
“It could have been a step-by-step move. The government could have given people some time to get things in order. The Adanis and the Ambanis already knew about it and sorted their money in advance,” he is heard saying in the video released by ANI news agency.
