Arvind Kejriwal, among the most voluble critics of the ban on 500 and 1,000 rupee notes, has said "It is anti-national to support demonetisation in (its) current form." Mr Kejriwal, who is the Chief Minister of Delhi, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's initiative to combat black money is designed to fail. Those who are honest and poor are waiting in lines at banks, he told NDTV, while "those with black money are getting the new notes home-delivered to them."
Highlights
  • I have 200-250 in my pocket right now.
  • It's not like I haven't faced any problem. But the thing is you can't see any important people in the lines.
  • G Janardhana Reddy held his daughter's wedding spending Rs 500 crores.
  • People are dying, they can't exchange any notes, how did he change Rs 500 crores?
  • People who actually have black money are getting new notes home delivered.
  • Income tax officers are going around markets and stamping bill books. But no one went to check Reddy's books. Can a wedding be done in Rs 2.5 lakh?
  • It is great if you can stop tax evasion, but you cannot do it overnight like a dictator. It should have been done with preparation.
  • We showed how to stop corruption in 49 days of our government. We had put corrupt officers in jail.
  • Hong Kong, Singapore all stopped corruption by cracking down on corrupt government officials.
  • Bribes are still being paid - in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh - in new 2,000 notes.
  • Demonetisation hasn't stopped corruption.
  • You got a list of people with Swiss bank accounts. But you did not act against them.
  • In the name of demonetisation, this is the biggest scam of independent India.
  • You know there are lakhs of NPAs, unpaid loans. Of this Modi sarkaar has written off over 1 lakh crore loans.
  • But to write off the rest, they did not have money.
  • So Modi ji hatched this plan to have the money deposited in banks. So that they could write huge loans of millionaires.
  • Why don't they write off loans of farmers? What relation does he have with these millionaires? People should know what their money, being deposited in banks, is being used for.
  • We can have a hundred differences with Modi ji but we believed he was financially clean
  • I have documents here. Aditya Birla Group was raided on 15 Oct 2013.
  • The documents that were found in it, IT prepped a report. They found an entry - "Gujarat CM 25 crore, 12 done. Rest?"
  • They found 130 crore in cash during that raid too.
  • I think this should be investigated.
  • These are reports of the IT department. I am raising it now because it explains why the demonetisation is being done.
  • Loans of so many rich people are being written off.
  • And these documents will disappear from the IT department, they will tell the Supreme Court, these documents don't exist.
  • All the donations of the BJP come in questionable cash. I demand that all parties reveal their accounts. We reveal even Rs 5 in donations.
  • Not just RTI, all parties should declare their black money.
  • After Barack Obama, PM Modi spent the most money on his campaign. Where did he get all that money from? Was it all white?
  • Enforcement Directorate, CBI is with you, why are you not investigating Narada, Saradha scam.
  • I ask Amit Shah, you had my home, offices raided - what did you find? Nothing, else he would have thrown me in jail.
  • I haven't given a certificate to anybody. You can raid me, Mamata, anybody - investigate everybody.
  • I do not understand how banning 500, 1000 notes and bringing 2,000 notes will solve corruption. You have to arrest the corrupt officers.
  • Earlier the person who took 100 notes to pay 1 lakh bribe, now he will take 50 notes.
  • It is anti-national to support demonetisation in its current form.
  • When Modi ji has done good things, we have supported him. Swachh Bharat, Yoga Day, Surgical Strikes - we backed him in all.
  • We have fought the biggest battle against corruption. Put our lives on the line, held hunger strikes.
  • There was 14 lakh crore in 500, 1000 notes. With this drive, they will collect about 12-10 lakh crore deposits - this is as per international precedents. And then they will claim 2 lakh crore of black money has been quashed.
  • Politicians are not important, people are important.
  • 55 people have died - this is just a little inconvenience? Are you not ashamed? All business, trade has stopped.
