“No one got Rs 15 lakh after all the money was deposited into bank accounts (during the demonetisation drive). Now, they are not telling us how much black money… how much ill-gotten money is there.”

On the SP-Congress poll alliance, the chief minister said it “accelerated the pace of SP’s cycle… We did not act like a miser friend. We gave a good number of seats to Congress.
