Karnal: Claiming that BJP government was the first to take effective steps to tackle black money, party president Amit Shah on Tuesday said it would not allow even a single penny to go out of India and has laid a strong foundation in last one year for development of the country.
He also accused the Congress of not taking any step to tackle black money menace despite being in power for 60 years and questioned its right in demanding a reply from the BJP.
"No government took even a single step for last 60 years against black money. Modi government is the only government that has taken steps, be it formation of an SIT or bringing a new law to prevent black money from going abroad.
"BJP pledges that not a single penny will go out of the country now," Shah said addressing a rally here.
He said the BJP-led NDA government has laid a strong foundation for the country that will help India achieve a respectable position in the world in the next four years.
Addressing a rally to mark government's first anniversary, Shah said, "This is just a beginning. Modi government has done the work of laying a strong foundation in the country. In the next four years, a grand structure will come up on it.
"I assure you that at the end of five years this government will ensure a respectable place for India on the world map."
He cautioned people against falling for "illusions" spread by some against the Modi government and said it has not done a single such task that will make Indians bow their heads.
Attacking the Congress, he said, they are demanding a reply from BJP which has given its account directly to the people and asked what has Congress done in its 60-year old.
"The people are demanding an answer from you," he said.
