Speaking to ANI, Majeed Memon said,''When Nirav Modi left India, at that time it was reported that some hours prior to PM's announcement of 'Demonetisation', 90 crore rupees of cash was brought in one of the branches of PNB & were exchanged for billions or something. This needs to be investigated.''
Even Congress president Rahul Gandhi had said, "This [bank fraud] started on November 8, 2016 when Modiji turned 500 and 1,000 rupee notes into scrap. He took out all the money from people's pockets and put it in the banking system." He also alleged that a scam of this level could not have been done without high level protection.
Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee also expressed a similar concern. "This is just the tip of the iceberg. This big banking fraud was fuelled at the time of demonetisation. Big money laundering happened during DeMo. Key bank officials were changed. Who are these people put in? There are more banks involved. The full truth must come out," she tweeted on February 18.
