Jaitley makes scathing attack on 'capital creation' of Cong party's first family

Thursday, March 14, 2019

New Delhi: In a scathing attack on the Congress party's first family, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley yesterday said if a forensic audit of their "capital creation" is conducted, the facts will speak for themselves.

Referring to a report on a web portal on "unjust enrichment of the extended Gandhi family", Jaitley said while conventionally many may have relied on straightway corruption through bribery, a new methodology has now been established.

"Wheeler-dealers and fly-by-night operators give you the privilege of 'sweetheart deals'. With very little investment, windfall profits are thrust on a few privileged ones to enable them to create a capital.

" 'Political equity' results in buying goodwill. It enables you to influence decisions," said Jaitley who heads the BJP's publicity committee for the ensuing general elections.

Without elaborating, Jaitley in his blog said, "When exposed", the beneficiaries hide behind the shield of 'clever business decisions'.

"If the 'capital creation' of the Congress Party's first family is subjected to a forensic audit, facts will speak for themselves. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones," the senior BJP leader wrote.

He made these remarks in a blog titled 'Is Prime Minister Modi's First Five-Year Tenure a Turning Point on Corruption?'. This was his third blog in the series 'Agenda 2019'.

Endorsing Jaitley's blog, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a tweet said, "No place for middlemen. No tolerance for corruption. No fake beneficiaries swindling away recourses. This is a New India. We have worked hard to remove corruption and punish the corrupt."
