"PM has asked common man of the country to manage with limited money and resources but his party men spend lavishly on their families. So who is the real black money hoarder here", asked one of the protestors
NSUI members accused the BJP of dual standards for claiming to curb black money on one hand and encouraging extravagant expenditure by people like Janardhana Reddy who is also accused of ammasing wealth beyond his known sources of income.
