He said in a recent letter to Mr. Modi that he had won the 2014 election “mainly and almost certainly in the promise to people to bring back 90 lakh crores of black money.”
Jethmalani, who announced his retirement from active legal service last week, said the prime minister did not help in his fight against black money. “The terrible truth came to me in early 2015 when BJP president Amit Shah revealed that all talk about the recovery of black money was a ‘chunavi jhumla’, a trick or a joke,” he said.
Mr. Jethmalani said that shortly after announcing his support for Modi as Prime Minister in 2012, his rivals began work on his expulsion from the BJP. However, some time later, both L.K. Advani and Nitin Gadkari received him and agreed to withdraw their proposal for expulsion, he said. “It was even announced by them in the newspapers. The news was not contradicted by anyone.” However, when he was on vacation abroad, he was expelled from the party. This was illegal, and he would continue the legal fight against the party to its logical end, he said.happy wheels
