He claimed that the police had recently seized Rs 3 crore from two persons in Ghaziabad, after which BJP leader Ashok Monga reached the police station and handed over a letter from BJP president Amit Shah stating that the money was being sent from BJP headquarters to BJP Lucknow office.

Taking a dig at the BJP Congress asserted that this is the time when the poor will stand in the line and rich and corrupt will benefit.
