Blackmoney declaration: Digvijay reminds BJP of poll promise

New Delhi, Oct 2: Congress leader Digivjay Singh today latched on to the Government's announcement that it has collected over Rs 65,000 crore in the biggest-ever declaration of black money to remind it of fulfilling BJP's poll promise of depositing Rs 15 lakh in bank account of each citizen.

"Congratulations to FM. He should start transferring this to People's A/C in Jan Dhan Yojna as promised by Modi & BJP or was it only a Jumla?", the senior party leader said in a tweet.

His remarks came a day after government said that Rs 65250 crore has been declared as unaccounted income and assets under the four-month-long Income Declaration scheme 2016 which ended on Friday last.

The Congress General Secretary also sought to remind the ruling dispensation that the surgical strikes carried out in PoK were less in significance than the breakup of Pakistan carried out by Indira Gandhi in 1971.

"All credit to our brave soldiers for the effective Surgical Strike in POK recently. But does it overshadow or is more decisive than the one when we broke up Pakistan into two under Mrs Indira Gandhi in 1971 ?", he wondered.
