Modi is looting country, says CPI general secretary Sitaram Yechury

  Launching a sharp attack on the Prime Minister, CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechuri on Sunday claimed that Narendra Modi, fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi and former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi were looting the country.

The Left leader said people never knew that the country had so many Modis, but what is common among them is that "all were looting".

Yechury -- re-elected the Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary -- said the loot increased after the Modi government came to power in May 2014.

He said that though Modi had promised to waive loans of farmers, he waived loans of about Rs 3 lakh crore of big investors and industrialists.

"People's money kept in banks was looted. Those who did it escaped from the country and the government is not able to bring them back," he said.

Yechury was addressing a public meeting organised by the CPI-M on Sunday evening to mark the end of five-day party national conclave.

Yechury compared Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah to epic Mahabharata's 'Duryodhana' and 'Dushasana'.

The Marxist leader said there were 100 Kaurava brothers in Mahabharat but most people know of only two -- Duryodhana and Dushasana. "Similarly, people know only two in BJP -- Narendra Modi and Amit Shah," he remarked.
