Congress General Secretary, Rahul Gandhi today asked senior BJP leader, L K Advani as to why did he remember the black money issue in Swiss Banks only a few weeks before the Lok Sabha elections?

Addressing an election meeting, Rahul said that Advani never thought about the black money stashed in Swiss Banks during six year NDA regime when he was deputy Prime Minister.

“We know that there was black money in Swiss Banks and the government was trying to bring it back to the country,” he said.

He said that following the Mumbai terror attacks, the UPA government exerted pressure on Pakistan to accept that terrorists involved in the attack were Pakistanis.

Rahul said that poverty was also an issue but the opposition parties did not talk about it, nor they bother about supplying electricity to farmers and power theft.
