In the midst of busting all the cash crunch and sparing literally no one from the Enforcement Directorate’s side, the government organisation busted near about Rs. 1o4 crores from Bahujan Samajwadi Party’s Supremo Mayawati’s account along with separate Rs. 1.43 crores from her brother Anand’s account. The money was collected during a raid at a local branch of United Bank of India in New Delhi ahead of UP Elections 2017.
Creating a ruckus after the bust, Mayawati stated that the Centre was targeting her as she opposed the demonetization probe as well as belonging to a Dalit community. The respective incident was praised and highly appreciated by Bhartiya Janta Party, which is all set to contest in UP Elections 2017, giving tough competition to home-ground parties. One of its senior members opinionated that the respective measures were taken to wipe out black money from the nation completely which will further help in Digital India motto followed by a cashless economy.
The incident was taken as a victorious attempt by Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) President Ram Vilas Paswan, who is a Dalit face of the BJP-led NDA ruling party of India. Bihar CM Nitish Kumar too supported the action taken by ED as earlier he had praised the move of note ban to which his allies felt offended. BJP party members showed their gratitude towards Nitish gesture as their sole motive is to clear the black money for a healthy nation.
Mayawati-led BSP being the biggest party after Samajwadi Party in UttarPradesh might suffer the loss as much ahead of the most anticipated UP Elections 2017, the ruling party of the State is thinking of collaborating withCongress and RLD against ruling giants BJP. Struggling hard to overcome the hundred crore loss, BSP might get alert with time thus giving tough competition to its rivals.
