Congress accuses Modi govt of facilitating Choksi's escape

New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday accused the Modi government of leaving"gaping holes"in the process of repatriation of PNB bank fraud accused Mehul Choksi and giving him a"clean chit"that enabled him to escape from the country early this year.
Congress Communications In-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala referred to Choksi's remarks in a video interview in which he has denied allegations of any wrongdoing and said he had received an email from the passport office on February 16 this year that his passport has been suspended.
"It is intriguing that Modi government allowed passport of Choksi to remain valid till Feburary 16, helping him escape on January 4, 2018,"Surjewala told reporters. He referred to the written reply given in Parliament to a question by party leader Kapil Sibal.
"Shocking details based on a parliamentary reply of July 24, 2018 as also details from Antigua's Citizenship By Investment Unit (CIU) have lifted the cover from the sins committed by every organ of the Modi government - PMO, MEA, CBI, SEBI -- that facilitated and gave a 'clean chit'to Choksi.
