No ‘black’ in Swiss Banks: Rahul Gandhi pokes fun of PM Narendra Modi on Twitter


NEW DELHI: Rahul Gandhi continued to lash out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter on Friday. The Congress chief this time trained his guns on the PM over reports that Indian deposits in Swiss banks had risen 50 percent to Rs 7000 crore. Gandhi ribbed Modi over his government’s previous statements on black money.

Gandhi raised attention to the fact that Modi while during campaigning for the 2014 Lok Sabha election had promised to bring back black money stashed in Swiss bank accounts, and that the Modi government had pitched demonetisation as a ‘surgical strike on black money’.

“2014, HE said: I will bring back all the “BLACK” money in Swiss Banks & put 15 Lakhs in each Indian bank A/C. 2016, HE said: Demonetisation will cure India of “BLACK” money. 2018, HE says: 50% jump in Swiss Bank deposits by Indians, is “WHITE” money. No “BLACK” in Swiss Banks!” read Gandhi’s tweet.
