Modi Govt’s inaction & complacency responsible for looters running away with people’s money in banks:Cong

Modi Govt’s inaction &  complacency responsible for looters running away with people’s money in banks:Cong

New Delhi, June 14 (UNI) Charging the Modi Government of being a ' mute spectator ' to the various bank scams in the country, the Congress on Thursday said the Centre's ‘complete inaction’, ‘utter complacency’ and ‘downright lethargy’ was responsible for looters running away with people’s money in banks.

Talking to reporters here, AICC spokesperson Rajeev Shukla said, ' even as the Modi Government has been caught snoozing, ‘Nirav Modi- the absconding accused in India’s ‘Biggest Bank Loot Scam’ is on a travel spree using a ‘revoked passport’ by the Ministry of External Affairs.

In a shocking revelation, that effectively punctures Modi Government’s claims of ‘taking action’ against the fraudsters , the Interpol has written a damning letter to India’s investigative agencies stating that despite the revocation of his passport on February 24, 2018, Nirav Modi travelled 3 countries on 4 different dates- March 15, March 28, March 30 and March 31.

On February 24, the MEA revoked the passports of Nirav Modi, promoter of Gitanjali Group, after he failed to respond to a February 16 notice issued by the Ministry, asking them to show-cause why their passports should not be impounded or revoked. According to Interpol's reply, Nirav Modi used his Indian passport to travel from the UK to another country.'

Alleging that it was business as usual for fraudsters like Nirav Modi, Mr Shukla said, 'while the PM gives ‘Fitness Lessons’ on Social Media, it is business as usual, for fraudsters like Nirav Modi. It is ridiculous and painful to witness that a ‘Strong’ Modi Government is caught snoozing, even as Nirav Modi travels indulges in globetrotting, while making a mockery out our systems!

Nirav Modi fled India on Jan 1, and was then photographed as part of the Business Delegation in World Economic Forum from 23rd to 26th January, 2018, seen in a group photograph with PM, Narendra Modi. The MEA only revoked his passport on February 24, 2018. Why did it take 54 days to revoke his passport? Was the Modi Govt aiding and abetting the escape of Nirav Modi and facilitating his escape to the farthest point from India’s shores?

Even as Nirav Modi shifted all his dummy directors from Hong Kong to Cairo and travelled conveniently from Hong Kong to UK to seek political asylum, the Modi Govt remained a mute spectator. This happened at the same time when PM Modi was visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping. Why?

The Interpol says that Nirav Modi travelled using Indian passport, post his ‘revocation’ – and then how did the Immigration authorities and exit points remain unaware of this? '
