Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday made public the alleged Swiss bank account numbers of Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh’s wife Preneet Kaur and son Raninder Singh, daring Prime Minster Narendra Modi to bring back the “black money” from these accounts.
Addressing a rally at Kotshamir near Bathinda, Kejriwal said Preneet and Raninder opened accounts (5090184485 and 5090184484) in a Swiss bank on July 26, 2005. He alleged Amarinder’s family opened another account (5090284483) in a trust’s name.
“Amarinder exhausted all the wealth he inherited from his ancestors in the 2002 assembly elections. After becoming the chief minister, he accumulated black money by looting the people of Punjab and opened accounts in foreign banks in 2005,” alleged Kejriwal, adding that why chief minister Parkash Singh Badal did not arrest Amarinder in corruption cases?
The Delhi CM said Modi should also direct the income tax department to conduct raids on Badals’ premises if he wants to wipe out black money.
Addressing the gathering, Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann — who has been declared AAP candidate from the Jalalabad assembly segment being represented by deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal — sought people’s support, saying he was a self-made man unlike Sukhbir, whose political career has been groomed by his father Parkash Singh Badal.
Mann said he was ready to contest elections against Sukhbir from any constituency of the deputy CM’s choice
He said if the AAP comes to power, those responsible for the death of two youths in the Behbal Kalan police firing would be prosecuted.
AAP’s Punjab in-charge and Delhi MLA Jarnail Singh asked Amarinder to seek dismissal of Congress leaders Sajjan Kumar and Jagdish Tytler.
Kejriwal also addressed a rally at Doda in Muktsar district.
