Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of reneging on pre-poll promises, the Samyukta Morcha, a confederation of Left and socialist parties, on Tuesday demanded that the government take immediate steps to bring back black money stashed away abroad.
They also called on the Modi government to deposit Rs 15 lakh in the account of each family, as promised in the run up to the Lok Sabha Polls.
Morcha members, led by Perin Daji, widow of the late comrade Homi Daji, declared that although six months had passed since it came to power neither the Prime Minister nor the government had taken any steps to bring back black money.
This creates the impression that the government is going back on its promises and the people feel cheated, said a statement issued by the Morcha.
Morcha members urged the President to direct the government to fulfil its promise about black money and the deposition of money into the bank accounts of each family.
