Finance Minister Arun Jaitley launched an offensive against Congress and charged that corruption scams peaked in the UPA’s period.
“Congress was in power from 2004 to 2014. But no step was taken to check black money. The second feature of that government was rampant corruption like 2G and coal block allocation scams,” he said.
He further said, “Given this scandalous record, it (Congress) is uncomfortable with anti-corruption steps. So, it is understandable that they are uncomfortable with this strong step by the Modi government.”
The Minister said during the UPA regime, high denomination currency went up from 36 percent to 85 cents. But the Narendra Modi government was overhauling the system. The demonetisation move was launched on November 8. That decision was a step forward in that direction report India Today
