Itanagar: Launching a scathing attack on the Congress, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju on Wednesday alleged that the party is "synonymous with corruption" and has "looted" the country since independence without thinking for the people.

Addressing a programme at Ganga Market in Itanagar to mark the first anniversary of demonetisation policy of the Modi-government, the Minister of State for Home said, "The tradition of the Congress since 1947 was to win election through money and power and after getting elected the leaders used to loot public money."

Rijiju said "The demonetisation policy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has put a halt in corruption and the Congress leaders are spending sleepless nights since November 8 last year for the black money they possess."

He said, the demonetisation policy of the NDA would be remembered in the history of Indian economy and the country has moved on to a much cleaner, transparent and honest financial system.

Criticising the Congress for observing November 8 as 'Black Day', Rijiju said that the party was nervous post demonetisation and making drama out of no issues.

"The NDA government will spare nobody engaged in corruption and soon there will be lot of action against them," the minister said.

Rijiju said, during the Congress regime in the country, there was "no coordination" between the government and the people. But after NDA came to power, Modi reduced the gap to a large extent.

Referring to Arunachal Pradesh, Rijiju claimed that the BJP government would do whatever work could not be done in the last 71 years in the state.

"As a representative from Arunachal I am in Delhi to raise your problems. No need to take tension till I am there and all your problems will be resolved," he emphatically said and assured that Tali in Kurung Kumey district of the state would be connected by road within 2019.

State BJP President Tapir Gao speaking on the occasion said that Modi took the decision of demonetisation in the interest of the country and the people.

"Congress is observing the day as Black Day because most of the black money in the country are in the possession of Congress leaders," he alleged adding that demonetisation has improved the economy of the country to a large extent.
