BJP seeks an answer from Sonia Gandhi, Congress wants IT to probe BJP
Reacting to the development, Amit Malviya, BJP IT Cell chief said, Ïn 2016, demonetisation was undertaken and the Congress party has been constantly criticising it. Congress has to answer for this money that has been traced back to their HQ. This points to the greed and hunger that Gandhis have for money. The documents and the IT trail needs explaining and none other than Sonia Gandhi should explain this as she is the party head right now.”
Responding to the Times Now newsbreak, Congress leader Rashid Alvi said that such an investigation is not possible without Prime Minister’s consent. “The BJP has built a seven-star office in Delhi, may I ask him to tell the IT to investigate that as well,” he said.
