Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated in Assam that the rich who have looted the public sector banks will not be spared. He said:
“You know how the rich have usurped public money. My government has tightened the screws on the bank defaulters. They are sweating due to fear of going to jail and are fleeing. But no one will be spared I am telling you.”
“The money looted from the banks does not belong to the banks but to the poor people of the country and I will ensure that those who looted this money return each and every paise… they have looted the country.”
Assurances and declarations are well taken. But what about action against the culprits? How the biggest defaulter Mallya was allowed to leave India despite clear evidence and cases against him by various government agencies? How Lali Modi was allowed to leave the country?
