A retired IAF (Indian Air Force) officer committed suicide in Allahabad and wrote a suicide note addressed to Prime Minister Modi. In his suicide note, he has blamed former Finance Minister P Chidambaram for the current economic slowdown.
As reported by India Today, Bijan Das in his suicide note has blamed the UPA government for the scams and financial mismanagement due to which he has not been able to find employment after retirement. He added that the effects of financial mismanagement and scams is seen after a few years and while GST and demonetisation may have temporarily effected the economy, the current slowdown cannot be blamed on it.
In his letter addressed to the Prime Minister, he said that the current state of economy is due to the financial scams from UPA era. He specifically blamed former finance minister P Chidambaram who is currently lodged in Tihar jail for his alleged involvement in INX Media scam.
He further requests the PM to help his son Vivek Das, who had once participated in a music reality show, in his singing career. He had reportedly also asked Allahabad administration to not hand over his body to the family as he did not want his son to see him like that. However, the authorities have reached out to the family for further investigation.
