West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has  alleged that Prime Minster Narendra Modi compromised national security by encouraging e-wallet Paytm with the help of demonetisation.

“Through Paytm, Modi has compromised national security. Our internal security has been sold to China through Paytm,” Mamata told mediapersons on Friday.

Mamata Banerjee pointed out that the e-commerce company Alibaba, which owns a major stake in the Paytm, was blacklisted by the US government.

“When the US has blacklisted it, why this company is being sponsored by our Prime Minister? What is the hidden agenda behind it?” she asked.

“Now, Alibaba and four aides are taking all the decisions. Even the finance minister does not know about it. He (Arun Jaitley) was not aware of the (demonetisation) decision. They (BJP) are bulldozing the people. They want to take the money of the poor and siphon it off to foreign countries,” she alleged.

The West Bengal Chief Minister further alleged that all “internal information” was being leaked through e-wallets.

Accusing the centre of creating an “ambience of terror”, Mamata Banerjee said, “It is a very big scam and should be thoroughly probed.”
