Shehzad Poonawalla said while on the one side Congress was opposing Demonetization, on the other hand, Jain was converting black money to white

The scorned Congress leader Shehzad Poonawalla has accused Congress leader Rajesh Jain of converting black money to white during Demonetization.

Poonawalla recently had come out speaking against the party line for its dynastic practices. He also alleged that the Congress Presidential elections are rigged and designed to favour Gandhi family. He also challenged the Congress president-elect Rahul Gandhi for a televised debate where both can put forward their vision for the party.

However, the Congress party brushed aside his allegations. Since then, Poonawalla has been running Dynasty Mukt Congress Abhiyan.

In his latest revelation, he named ex MLA of Congress from Delhi Rajesh Jain. He said Jain was indulged in money laundering and running shell companies.

In a tweet, he said, “Close aide of Ajay Maken in Delhi Rajesh Jain has been arrested for money laundering – were converting demonetised black money to White – ED info -firms recd money to tune of Rs 8.71 crore- whose money was he handling? Was this the reason Cong (dynasty) opposed NoteBandi”

He said that Rajesh Jain is a close aide of Ajay Maken and also handled 2015 polls and 2017 MCD elections for Congress. He said while on the one side Congress was opposing Demonetization, on the other hand, Jain was converting black money to white. Poonawalla asked, “Is this the reason why Congress opposed Demonetization?”

Poonawalla also said that to launder the money Jain created shell companies and used forged documents, fake addresses, fictitious PAN numbers and accounts.

In a scathing attack, he asked whether his action was to ensure the failure of Narendra Modi’s Demonetization or to save the High Command’s money?

In his last tweet regarding the revelation, he said that he will reveal soon whose money Jain was hiding.


Kumaraswamy government in deep slumber, alleges Yeddyurappa





Belagavi |Alleging that the Congress-JDS coalition government in Karnataka was in a deep slumber like the epic character ‘Kumbhakarna,’ state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa on Tuesday said it had no moral right to remain in power.

The Congress was now regretting its decision to support the JD(S) to form a government, Yeddyurappa claimed in the assembly, as he asked the ruling coalition to work towards addressing issues of the people or “resign and go”.

Seeking to corner the government on a host of issues, he said the coalition worries in the ruling alliance were “hampering” the administration and developmental works.

Initiating the debate on drought situation in the state, Yeddyurappa said, the government has announced hundred taluks as drought-hit and the situation was such that 20 more taluks are likely to be added to the list.

Demanding answers from the government on drought mitigation measures, he said, according to information gathered by him, except for one or two places, ministers had not visited affected areas and funds were not being utilised efficiently for relief works.

Pointing out at the delay in setting up of fodder banks, he said, “no minister or Chief Minister had taken the situation seriously.

Noting that the state had overall deficit rainfall of about 49 per cent, Yeddyurappa sought to know the steps taken to address the situation with summer approaching fast.

“The government is in a deep slumber like Kumbhakarna.

It has closed it eyes. It is not coming to the rescue of farmers and people at the time when they need it the most,” he added.

Coming down heavily on the JD(S), Yeddyurappa while pointing at the promises made by the party ahead of assembly polls, including waiving of farm loan within 24 hours after coming to power, said its manifesto was a “bundle of lies”.

“I want to tell this Chief Minister that he had made a false promise to the 6.5 crore people of the state through his manifesto of lies….,” he said.

Stating that he would have wanted the government to complete its five-year term if it had fulfilled the promises made and worked for the betterment of the people, the BJP leader said, “after having seen its administration and its functioning, I feel this government has no moral right to stay in power.”

Yeddyurappa, the leader of Opposition also questioned Congress’ silence on the functioning of the government, headed by its coalition partner the JD(S).

“Have you (Congress) read JD(S)’ manifesto…. Chief Minister still speaks only about big things, but nothing was happening on the ground,” he said.

He alleged that during the previous Siddaramaiah government rule, 4,712 farmers had committed suicide and 489 under the current dispensation.

There was growing disgruntlement within the Congress and “it may explode any time”, he claimed.

“People are waiting when this government will go…

you (ruling coalition) work for the people and address their issues or resign and go,” he added.
