Addressing an election meeting here, Gandhi said, "Modi talked about bringing back black money from abroad and putting Rs 15 lakh in each Indian's bank account. I ask why Mallya and Lalit Modi are still abroad then."
"(In one hand) Modi talks about bringing back black money and on the other hand Mallya flees the country. Two-three days before his departure, Mallya and (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley had talked in the Parliament House. I ask what discussion took place between them," Gandhi said.
He said the BJP government has launched "kala dhanko safed karlo" (convert your black money into white) scheme while Modi talks about fighting black money, the Congress leader said and demanded that BJP speak the truth.
He was referring to the new amnesty scheme announced in the Union Budget for black money holders to come clean.
"Modi will lecture in Assam but will say nothing about Mallya, Lalit Modi or the 'fair and lovely scheme'. They (BJP) think they can go on lying and people will go on listening to them," he said.
