ABG another feather in Cong’s overburdened cap of graft: BJP | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Asserting that the ABG Shipyard scam unfolded under UPA and was detected during the tenure of the current regime, BJP on Wednesday said that the bank fruand involving swindle of more than Rs 22,000 crore belonging to public sector banks marked yet another dubious distinction of the Congress-led regime
Rebutting Congress’s attempt to link the “biggest bank fraud scam” to Modi government, BJP spokepserson said that the probe has established that the fraud was perpetrated under UPA’s charge.
“The case is another feather in the already overburdened cap of the blatant corruption of the Congress,” spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi alleged and asked, “ Congress should tell us, what was its role in the biggest scam?” He further alleged that there are inputs which suggest that the company’s promoters had close relations with a former political adviser to the Congress president.
“What has been described as Rs 22,000 crore scam started in 2012 when Congress-led UPA was in power. Order worth Rs 970 crore in June 2011 and Rs 500 crore were placed in January 2012 and the company’s loan was restructured in March 2014 in the last days of the UPA government,” the BJP leader said citing the CBI report.
He said that an audit report exposed the “wrongdoings” in 2016, and the BJP government took action against it. “Most of the rigging has happened between 2005-2012,” Trivedi said.
