Rahul takes on Modi over Chinese firms' donations to PM Fund

New Delhi, Jul 11 (IANS): Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi again trained his guns at the Prime Minister over the PM-CARES Fund saying why Narendra Modi was not sharing details when everyone knew which Chinese companies donated to it.

"Why is the PM so scared of disclosing the names of those who donated money to him for PMCares? Everyone knows Chinese companies Huawei, Xiaomi, TikTok and OnePlus gave money. Why doesn't he share the details?" he tweeted.

His remarks came after the Public Accounts Committee, one of the most important parliamentary panels that scrutinises key reports by the auditor general and has taken up issues, like the 2G spectrum scam, in the past, failed to arrive at a consensus on Friday on examining the government's response to the Covid-19 pandemic or the PM-CARES Fund, set up to tackle the crisis.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which enjoys a majority in the panel led by senior leader Bhupender Yadav, blocked Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury's attempt to name the PM-CARES Fund for examination, saying its funding was not sanctioned by Parliament and therefore it couldn't be taken up by the committee.

The Congress has also been critical of the BJP over the handling of border faceoff with China in Ladakh.

    Why are Modi and the BJP reluctant to disclose Chinese firms' donations to PM fund? What have they got to hide? Were the Chinese firms donations to PM fund and their investments in Gujarat the reason for Modi and the BJP to go easy on China?

    We used to play this blind blame game in Kindergarten.
    Haven't we grown up responsibly now?
