Govt has failed to provide jobs or to bring back black money: Opposition | India News – Times of India



NEW DELHI: The entire opposition targeted the government in Parliament over the Adani issue during the debate on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s speech, accusing it of supporting the business conglomerate with the help of public financial institutions.
In Lok Sabha, TMC MP Mahua Moitra said the billionaire businessman had ‘topi-pehnau-ed (duped)’ the country. Without naming Adani, Moitra said a famous person whose name starts with ‘A’ and ends with ‘I’ and is not Advani, who stinks of crony capitalism, had duped everyone. She brought two birthday caps to the House to press her argument.
“Honorable Prime Minister this man, Mr A, has topi-pehnau-ed (duped) you; he travels with you, with your delegation. He meets heads of states on their visits to India… he makes it appear to the world that he is remote control behind the prime minister,” she alleged.
TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee sought to know when the Hindenburg Research report “clearly speaks about money laundering by the Adani Group of Industries”, why authorities were not initiating proceedings against the business group.
DMK MP Kanimozhi demanded that the government clarify how raising allegations against the Adani Group could be equivalent to “questioning” India, while hitting out at the ruling dispensation for “shielding” corporates. She also accused the treasury benches of turning a blind eye and providing strong support to corporates even when their “wrong-doings” come to the fore.
JD (U) member Kaushalendra Kumar said that the government is talking of Amrit Kal, but there is nothing like that. Kumar alleged that the Modi government has failed to provide jobs to people and also failed to bring back black money. He also demanded special status for Bihar.
BJP member C P Joshi on Tuesday hit out at Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, saying he should first bring together the warring Congress factions in Rajasthan before thinking of uniting the nation. Joshi who moved the Motion lashed out at Congress, saying it “partitioned” the country with an eye on the chair of Prime Minister. “You have embarked on Bharat Jodo, but first at least unite the two leaders in Rajasthan,” referring to infighting in the Rajasthan Congress leadership.
