Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government, saying it had launched a “Fair and Lovely Yojana” to convert black money into white money. Gandhi was participating on the discussion on the motion of thanks to the President on his address to the joint sitting of parliament’s two houses, marking the beginning of the budget session. Gandhi said: “Nobody who has black money will be jailed under Modi’s ‘Fair and Lovely’ scheme. All those who have black money can make it white under this scheme.” He added: “Modi ji had promised that he will put people with black money behind bars, now they have come up with way to save those people… I was shocked to see Finance Minister Arun Jaitley launching such a scheme.” He said the prime minister had failed to fulfil his poll promise of bringing black money from foreign countries.
