AMRITSAR, April 12: Former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today categorically dismissed the charges levelled against him by the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi about the alleged foreign bank account in the name of his wife or son. “It is a classic case of pot calling kettle black”, he remarked, while referring to the charges of mass murder against Modi which he has never answered so far.
In a hard hitting response to Modi’s allegations made during an address at Barmer, Capt Amarinder remarked, “imagine a man charged with mass murder of hundreds of innocent people never having the moral courage to speak about it, but resorting to myths and lies conceived and created by the dirty tricks department of his party”.
The Congress leader reiterated that nobody stopped Modi and his party to pursue these accounts and prove these to be true. “This is not for the first time that they have raised it and I am sure this won’t be the last time either”, he remarked, while adding, the very timing of these allegations exposes the motive behind these as they have starting fathoming the defeat in Amritsar.
Capt Amarinder said, the continuous and consistent malicious campaign launched by the BJP, first through a maverick mercenary like Subramanian Swamy followed up by Arun Jaitley, Nirmala Sitaraman and now Modi only betrays their frustration that they are badly losing in Amritsar. “I actually take it as an admission by the BJP of its defeat much ahead of the actual battle”, he remarked, while adding, “otherwise there is no point in raising this allegation which even they know has no basis”.
