LIE: Then (after demonetization) we found three lakh companies, which were only shell companies


Modi Lies

The irony is that according to a press release by the Ministry of Finance on 28th July 2017, the companies removed from the Register of Companies stood at 1,62,618 (as on 12.07.2017). The entire document mentions nothing about demonetization. This was another failed attempt to justify the horror of demonetization. Between 2013-14 to 2015-16, only 1155 shell companies […]

LIE: Around 4.5 lakh people have now come forward and are trying to tread the right path after accepting their mistakes. One lakh people, who had neither heard of Income Tax nor paid Income Tax, have now been forced to do so


Modi Lies

The government had sent communications to people regarding their income but again, there is absolutely no data or study or research that points to the fact that 4.5 lakh people have come forward and 1 lakh people have been forced to pay income tax. If Mr. Modi’s strength is speaking with numbers, why isn’t there […]

LIE: This year, see the results, from 1st April to 5th August more than 56 lakh people filed personal income tax returns. Last year in the same period it was just 22 lakh


Modi Lies

Mr. Modi completely ignored that the data has been cherry picked according to his whims. The comparison is baseless. The 22 lakh figure he is quoting is from 1st to 7th September, 2015. In FY 2016-2017, the rise in returns filed stood at 24.30% while for the year 2017-18 (from 1st April – 5th August) […]

LIE: According to the research conducted by outside experts, about Rs 3 lakh crores that had never come into the banking system before, has been brought into the system after the demonetization.


Modi Lies

PM has once more made claims which are baseless. While the Finance Ministry has repeatedly said that there is no official data on the quantum of black money. Moreover, when the statement was made, the RBI had not finished the counting of notes, final data of which is still not available. One may wonder how […]

LIE: Our mothers and sisters are an integral unit of our families. Their contribution in making our future is extremely important. And that is why we have decided to increase the paid maternity leave to 26 weeks from the earlier 12 weeks


Modi Lies

In 2016, The Maternity Benefits Bill 1961 was amended to increase paid maternity leave from 12 weeks to 26 weeks. But this applies only to the organised sector as was the original bill. This gap was pointed out in a Parliamentary Standing Committee report in 2007 which suggested that the existing law should be universally applicable […]

LIE: I review government projects every month. A specific project came to my notice. It was a 42-year-old project. Seventy kilometres-72 kilometres of railway lines were to be laid, but the project was lying in limbo for the last 42 years


Modi Lies

This misleading statement is made to exhibit the good governance under BJP where projects are undertaken and completed without delay. But facts say otherwise. In 2016 -2017, new projects worth Rs 13.8 trillion were announced out of which only projects worth Rs 6.34 trillion were completed while rest were stalled. In the following year, new […]
