Centre slept while Nirav Modi globe-trotted: Congress

Prime News, National (New Delhi), March 15:- The Congress on Friday accused the Narendra Modi government of having “slept and snoozed” while fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi set up a diamond business in London after fleeing the country with the support of a firm linked to the Panama Papers.
It asked the government why it could not trace him globe-trotting, despite having the resources of all the probe agencies at its disposal.
“Today is ‘World Sleep Day’, therefore today the Congress party shall expose how PM Modi i.e ‘Desh Ka Chowkidar’ and his government slept and snoozed while ‘Chhota Modi’ i.e Nirav Modi looted crore (of rupees), fled the country, posed with the PM, globe-trotted, opened a new diamond business in London which has a Panama Papers connection,” Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said in a press conference here.
“Simple question is – If the Congress party can expose this entire chain of events and trace his trail, why could the CBI, ED, and other investigative agencies of the Modi Government not do the same after 14 months of his escape?
“Is it not a clear-cut case of criminal complacency, complicity and connivance by Modi government with economic offenders like Nirav Modi,” he said.
To bolster its point, the party produced a timeline of Nirav Modi’s travels to several countries after he fled from India on January 1 and after revocation of his passport by the Indian government on February 23. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
