The Congress party today questioned the `Great Escape’ of fugitive billionaire Mehul Choksi to Caribbean country following “shocking details” emerging from Antigua. It accused that these details have “exposed the complicity and connivance” of the Modi government.
Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala lambasted Modi government alleging that “loot and make them scoot is the prime policy of the the Modi government. The shocking details reveal how the Modi government enacted this mega scam”.
Surjewala alleged that the Ministry of External Affairs issued a clean chit to Choksi when there were complaints pending against him. He sought to know why the Prime Minister’s Office did not act or direct the External Affairs Ministry, Central Bureau of Investigation, Enforcement Directorate, Securities and Exchange Board of India, Serious Fraud Investigation Office to take action on two complaints dated May 7 and May 26, 2015.
He further lamented that shocking details from Antigua’s Citizenship By Investment Unit have lifted the cover from the sins committed by every organ of the Modi government PMO, MEA, CBI, SEBI etc that facilitated and gave a ‘clean chit’ to the fraudster.
