Some politicians opposing move against black money, says PM Modi

New Delhi, Feb 9 (IBNS): In a fresh salvo, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has attacked opposition members for preventing growth of the nation by not supporting the move to curb black money.

Questioning the role of 'some politician' the Prime Minister said that while the common people have welcomed demonetisation, lawmakers are opposing it.

"The distinction is clear- people of India support moves to eliminate corruption & black money while some politicians oppose it," he said.

PM Modi has also congratulated the people of India for responding to government's Swachh Bharat drive.

"Swachh Bharat Mission has changed mindsets. People have wholeheartedly blessed this Mission. Sanitation coverage in rural India has risen," his statement read.

He also took on the opponents to settle the score on RBI.

Rubbishing a popular theory that the government is using RBI as for personal gain, the Prime Minister said that one shouldn't take up names of nationalised institutes to settle political scores.

"Attacks on RBI are unfortunate. Why demean the sanctity of institutions just to settle political scores?"
