Union Minister Ramdas Athawale blamed Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for proving to be a hindrance in the promised deposition of Rs 15 lakh into each Indian’s bank account.
The 58-year-old politician said that Rs 15 lakh, which were promised by PM Narendra Modi during his prime ministerial campaign in 2014, cannot come in a single instalment.
Speaking to the media Athawale said that the Rs 15 lakh revealed that the central government has asked for money from the RBI. However, the central bank is not releasing the funds, hence the money cannot be collected.
Athawale cited technical issues as RBI’s problem for not being able to dispense the amount.
The Republican Party of India chief was talking about the promise that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made during his campaign in 2014. The senior BJP leader had said that every bank account in the country will receive Rs 15 lakh each after the recovery of all the black money that has been hoarded both in India and overseas.
After almost four-and-a-half years of PM Modi’s regime, the promise remains unfulfilled and the BJP leadership, especially the PM, often become a subject of criticism and online trolls for failing to deliver.
Earlier, Athawale grabbed the headlines for saying that Congress president Rahul Gandhi is not a Pappu anymore. He said that after winning the three Hindi heartland states after the recently conducted Assembly elections, Rahul Gandhi has now become a Pappa.
