This is the massive story as Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav’s eldest daughter and Rajya Sabha MP Misa Bharti had carried out illegal transactions after demonetisation announced. Times Now has accessed the Enforcement Directorate’s list of politicians who are under the scanner for cheating during the demonetisation drive.
They had been transacting and violating the norms and regulations of the government which were announced on the demonetisation eve. This is the first time, as never before have names been taken by the Enforcement Directorate. More than 11,000 crores of slush funds have been detected, and 4,000 cases have been registered under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
Financial channels from UAE, Dubai, Malaysia, and Hong Kong were used to transfer money out of India. Crores in new currency were also recovered in the ED raids, clearly pointing towards the complicity of the bank officials at a time when the common man was suffering from the paucity of the currency.
