AAP MLA Atishi has said that she has been sent an Income Tax notice by the IT department over a Fixed Deposit in her bank account. The critic of the BJP and the Narendra Modi government alleged that the government has let off the likes of Vijay Mallya and Mehul Choksi while going after people like her.
Saying that the government doesn’t have the time to go after Mallya and Choksi (both of whom are fugitives facing ED and other investigations for defaulting thousands of crores to public sector banks), Atishi said that the money in her FD account was saved before the AAP was even formed.
She asked whether the leaders of the ruling BJP are ready to declare all their assets transparently.
Earlier this week, AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal said that his government in Punjab would be providing free electricity if voted to power.
