BJP claims Cong link to Rana Kapoor as he bought painting from Priyanka

NEW DELHI: BJP on Sunday sought to pin down Congress on the
Yes Bank fiasco and claimed that every financial crisis in India had deep links with the Gandhis.

Posting on Twitter a clip of a report that Rana Kapoor, the arrested Yes Bank founder, had bought a painting from Congress’s
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, BJP’s information and technology wing in-charge
Amit Malviya said, “Every financial crime in India has links with the Gandhis. Mallya used to send flight upgrade tickets to Sonia Gandhi. Had access to MMS (Manmohan Singh) and PC (P
Chidambaram). Is absconding…”

Congress, however, rubbished the charge and said Priyanka had sold an
M F Hussain painting of her father
Rajiv Gandhi to Kapoor for Rs 2 crore, and the entire amount was disclosed in her income tax return of 2010. Randeep Surjewala added, “How does an M F Hussain painting of Rajivji sold 10 years ago by Priyankaji to Yes Bank owner Rana Kapoor and disclosed in her tax return, connect with unprecedented giving of loans of Rs 200,000 crore in five years of Modi government? ”
