New Delhi: Launching a scathing attack on the NDA government, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, Thursday, accused the Centre of allowing Vijay Mallya to escape from the country.
“Question is how did a man who stole Rs. 9000 crore leave country, neither Modi ji nor Arun ji gave an answer in the Parliament,” Rahul said.
“They talk about bringing back black money, then how did they allow this?” he added.
Questioning the government over the 'income disclosure scheme' scheme, Rahul said that while the government is giving tax evaders to convert their black money into white, the PM is mum on delivering on his promise to give Rs 15 lakhs to each individual in the country by bringing back black money.
“PM spoke in both houses of Parliament but he did not answer a single question on 'Fair & Lovely' scheme,” he said.
Rahul also alleged that the government does not allow the opposition to speak in the Parliament on the Vijay Mallya issue. “PM does not like to discuss these issues,” he said.
