Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday asked BJP MPs and MLAs to submit their bank account statements of transaction between November 8, the day he announced demonetisation, and December 31 to party chief Amit Shah on January 1, 2017.

In an apparent response to the charge that the bill to amend IT Act will help turn black money into white, the Prime Minister said the amended Act will channel the money looted from the poor for their welfare.
The amended Act, he said, is a programme for the poor's welfare from Lok Kalyan Marg, the new name of the road where the Prime Minister's residence is located.
"The amendment is not for turning black money into white but to spend the money looted from the poor on their welfare," he said.
