Bengaluru: The Bharatiya Janata party on Sunday hit out at Manmohan Singh for criticising the Narendra Modi-led demonetisation policy and said the former Prime Minister lacks credibility for such an attack as he himself headed the most corrupt regime ever.
"Manmohan Singh attacking this government for fight against black money lacks credibility. He himself in his 10 years' regime, had not only failed in tackling black money, but is seen as heading the (most) corrupt regime ever in this country. He was responsible for accumulation of black money," BJP General Secretary Muralidhar Rao told reporters here.
"I don't value Singh's criticism because he is a failed leader, who is attacking a government and a leader who is performing and taking fight against black money to its logical end," Rao said.
Responding to a question, Rao said the long queues at ATMs and banks besides currency crunch would disappear by December 30.
"That's what Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said. It may take some more time for the economy to become normal," the BJP leader asserted.
Attacking the NDA government for implementation the demonetisation policy, Singh had on November 24 said in Rajya Sabha that the move was a case of organised loot and legalised plunder and reflected a monumental management failure".
