BSP chief Mayawati on Sunday raked up black money -- one of the major poll promises of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the run-up to the 2014 election and questioned his silence on the issue. 

''People of the nation want to know why is government, especially the PM Modi, silent on black money? Is it because most of those people who deposit money abroad are those close to BJP, due to whom it has emerged as the wealthiest party of India in such short span of time?'' Mayawati asked. 

Accusing BJP of going back to its original agenda of ''hatred'', she said people are recalling promises made by PM, especially the one to bring back black money. 

''BJP has chucked development issue and come back to its original agenda of hatred, communal disharmony and divisive politics that's why they pulled out of alliance in Jammu and Kashmir,'' Mayawati said.

Attacking the Modi government on businessmen leaving the country after looting the country's banks, she said businessmen take the help of Indian banks to flourish their business and then flee after conning them to deposit their money outside. People in the country are wondering why is Narendra Modi government so helpless when it comes to stopping them?  Mayawati wondered.
