Black money hoarders converting their unaccounted money into white using the poor people

New Delhi, December 2, 2016: The Finance Ministry on Friday warned the black money hoarders that those involved in the conversion of black money to White will not be spared.

The government on November 8 had announced the demonetization of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes to root out corruption and terrorism from the country. But, black money hoarders were converting their unaccounted money into white by using the poor people.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned people that they should not convert their ill-gotten by using the poor people as it would put them into trouble.

Modi said in his radio talk “Mann ki Baat”, “Some people think they can convert their black money into white. And they are looking at unlawful ways. It’s unfortunate they have chosen to use poor people for this.”

“I want to say that is us up to them to abide by the law or break it, it is up to them if they want to correct themselves. The law will deal with them. But please don’t play with lives of poor,” Prime Minister Modi added.

The government urged the citizens of India to help out the government in rooting out black money.

“Those indulging in or colluding with money laundering or converting black money into white will not be spared,” Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das tweeted.

“Trails being pursued by agencies. Coordinated action underway. Result already visible. Will be more visible in coming days,” he added.
