Yechury alleges Modi Govt misusing RBI fund for 'PR Jumla'

New Delhi, Feb 19 (UNI) Lashing out at the Narendra Modi government over the ‘misuse’ of constitutional institutions, Communist Party of India-Marxist general secretary Sitaram Yehury on Tuesday alleged that the government has drained the Reserve Bank of India by taking interim dividend from its resource.
He was referring to the media reports that the RBI is giving 28,000 crore dividend to the government from its interim surplus.
“No institution has been left unscathed by the Modi government. To meet the profilgate ways of this PR-jumla sarkar, the Central bank is now being drained”, Mr Yechury alleged.
The Left party leader also stated that the Modi government is destroying the very basic fundamentals of the democratic governance based on Constitutional morality.
The Central bank has decided to give dividend to the government at its Central Board meeting, which was addressed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, on Monday
Demand for the interim dividend from RBI had resulted a public standoff between the Central bank and the Modi government, and subsequently it led to the exit of the then Governor Urjit Patel.
