Accusing Chhattisgarh chief minister, Raman Singh over the Panama Papers issue, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday demanded the resignation of Raman Singh.
The Congress vice president alleged, “Sharif resigned after his and his family’s name figured in the Panama Papers scandal but chief minister Raman Singh’s family is also facing allegations in the Panama Papers issue and he has not yet resigned.”
“It is because he belongs to the RSS and the BJP and they can indulge in corruption,” he said wryly.
Last year, the Congress had alleged Singh’s son Abhishek held offshore assets as per the Panama Papers leak.
The Panama Papers are leaked documents of about 1.15 crore files containing details of about 2.15 lakh bank accounts.
Both the chief minister and his son, the Lok Sabha MP from Rajnandgaon, had rubbished the allegations. The chief minister had described the charges as “baseless and unfounded”.
“Modiji talks about fighting corruption, but he can’t see the corruption of the Chhattisgarh chief minister. The Rajasthan chief minister, too, has been linked to corruption, but Modiji is not speaking about it,” the Congress leader alleged.
