Rahul Gandhi invokes chit fund scam, PDS scam, Panama paper leak to target Raman Singh

Launching a scathing attack on Raman Singh, Congress President Rahul Gandhi also accused him of shielding his son in Panama Paper leak case.

 

Raipur| Prime Minister Narendra Modi doesn’t tell the people of Chhattisgarh that their Chief Minister Raman Singh is corrupt, alleged Rahul Gandhi on Saturday. He was addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker. The Congress President accused Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh of being involved in the chit fund scam. “Modi ji says he’s fighting against corruption. Your Rs 5000 Cr disappeared in chit-fund scam, 310 FIRs were registered but no action was taken because CM was involved,” said Gandhi.

Invoking the infamous ‘diary gate’ in PDS scam, he said that certain references were found in the diary. “Diary mili, diary mein likha tha ‘CM Madam ko paisa diya. Dr Sahab ko paisa diya.’ I ask Raman Singh ji who is this CM Madam & Dr Sahab whose names were found in the diary in connection with the scam?” Gandhi asked.

Launching a scathing attack on Raman Singh, Gandhi also accused him of shielding his son in Panama Paper leak case. He even referred to former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif being jailed as his name appeared in the Panama paper leak. “Why is no action taken against his son, whose name appeared in Panama papers? In Pakistan the PM is jailed because his name appeared in Panama papers,” Rahul Gandhi added.

Saturday marks the last day of campaigning for the first phase of Chhattisgarh Assembly elections. Attacking the Modi govt on farm loan waivers, he said PM Modi waived loans worth Rs 3.5 lakh crore of 15 select industrialists since 2014.

“Jan Ghoshna Patra”, the manifesto launched by the Congress government keeps farmers in focus and promises farm loan waivers, minimum support price for crops as per the Swaminathan Commission recommendations and a ban on liquor sales.

The state will vote in two phases on November 12 and November 20 while the counting of votes will take place on December 11.
