 Prime Minister Modi said that the management and auditors of the banks should perform their duty with due diligence. He appealed to policymakers to perform their duties with dedication.

 

After coming under fire for not talking about the alleged 11,400 crores Punjab National Bank scam by the absconding diamantaire Nirav Modi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi finally broke his silence on Friday. PM Modi was addressing a gathering of businessmen and industry professionals at the Global Business Summit. Referring to the PNB scam and the multi-crore loan default by Mehul Chowksi of Gitanjali Gems, he said that his government will not tolerate such a loot and he will ensure that strict action is taken against the culprits.

PM Modi said, “Our government has time and again taken stringent action against the financial irregularities.” “We will continue to do so in future as well,” Modi assured.

Recently, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley reacting to PNB scam had come down heavily on the management and auditor of Punjab National Bank for not being able to identify the fraud at the earliest. He also highlighted that the supervisory agencies should put in place a new mechanism to detect such irregularities and frauds.

Reiterating the Finance Minister’s statement, Prime Minister Modi too said that the management and auditors of the banks should perform their duty with due diligence.  He further appealed to policymakers to maintain the ethics of their profession and perform their duties with utmost dedication.

A few days ago, the opposition Congress had hit out at PM Modi for maintaining silence on the scams in the country. In a video titled “Maun Modi”, the party took a jibe at PM Modi’s alleged silence on crucial issues that are a matter of national concern. The Congress is also planning to corner the government in the budget session over the PNB and Rotomac scam.
