New Delhi: Fireworks over the issue of alleged forced conversion of Muslims into Hinduism began as a united Opposition attempted to attack the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre when both Houses convened for normal business on Thursday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today asked the people of Jammu and Kashmir to "close the shops" of political parties which did not fulfil promises and looted the state, and assured that there will be no dearth of money for development if BJP is voted to power.
The government on Thursday faced flak in the Lok Sabha for yet another day on the black money issue, with the opposition parties asking it to give a timeline by which the money stashed abroad would be brought back to India. Referring to the steps being taken by the government to unearth black money, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said government has identified 427 account holders associated with HSBC list and efforts are on to complete tax assessment by March 31, 2015.
A day after the Opposition disrupted the proceedings of Parliament on the first working day of the Winter Session over the issue of black money, the issue has been taken up for a detailed discussion in both the Houses on Wednesday.
