Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hinted at a crackdown on benami properties and said the Congress is worried as such assets of its leaders will not be spared in his government’s action.

Mr Modi said, the Congress’ campaign against demonetisation was driven by its attempts to mislead the people and create an atmosphere against him before he can raise a storm over benami assets.

The Prime Minister was addressing an election rally at Sundernagar in Himachal Pradesh yesterday.

Mr Modi said, the time has come to return to the poor what had been robbed of them. Prime Minister said he is going to create a situation where corrupt people will not be able to reclaim their benami assets.

Mr Modi said Congress leaders are worried about their benami assets like land, flats, shops they have kept hidden like 500 and 1000 rupee notes.

Prime Minister said there are many Congress leaders who have purchased assets like cars and houses in the names of their drivers and cooks. Mr Modi said these people should not return these assets to leaders if they are asked to transfer their ownership.

Earlier at a rally in Kangra, he asserted that people had voted him to power in 2014 not to enjoy himself but to fight corruption and change the country’s fate.

The prime minister said he was resolutely fighting graft which had flourished under the patronage of previous governments.
