New Delhi: The BJP on Tuesday hit out at the Congress over its accusations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi about “omitting” certain details about his property in his affidavits, saying there was a bankruptcy of issues in the opposition parties and the number of the amalgamated plot is different from the separate individual numbers.
The party accused the Congress of falsehoods and said there was a limit to trivialisation.
“The caravan of falsehood moves on. There is a bankruptcy of issues in the Congress party. Today’s election issue was that the number of plot owned by the PM (his only asset) is now shown differently numbered from what was shown earlier.
“Similar charge is made against the Finance Minister. There is a limit to trivialisation. Four plots purchased by four different persons were amalgamated into one on 25.4.2008. Obviously, the number of the amalgamated plot is different from the separate individual numbers,” the party said in tweets.
Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera had alleged at a press conference here that Modi was “hiding something” about a property in Gandhinagar.
Khera said the Election Commission should take “thorough cognizance of the seemingly deliberate omissions” in the Prime Minister’s affidavits and take appropriate action.
BJP leaders said that “false and misleading” allegations were being levelled against Modi who was working on the principle of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas” and noted that he had donated Rs 21 lakh from his personal savings to the corpus fund for the welfare of sanitation workers of Kumbh Mela.
They said he had also contributed prize money of Seoul Peace Prize and that amount received from auction of mementoes during his tenure as prime minister to Namami Gange mission and had made contributions earlier as chief minister of Gujarat for the education of girl child.
