Arvind Kejriwal has alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken Rs 10 crores while he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat.
The former Delhi Chief Minister is one of the opposition leaders who were against PM Modi’s move to abruptly ban higher denomination notes. Kejriwal’s accusations were based on a tax raid on the officers of the Aditya Birla Group in 2013.
Kejriwal said that according to a tax department report after the raid laptops and phones belonging to the then president of Aditya Birla Group were studied and the entry “Gujarat CM-25 Crore (12 done rest?)” was found.
He said that it is clear that Modi received that payment from the company. Kejriwal however did not repeat the allegations outside the state legislature.
