Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal alleged on Saturday that a big scam has been created on the pretext of wiping out black money from the country.

Kejriwal said that people with legitimate wealth are put through inconvenience and harassment as they have to stand in queues for hours just to withdraw their own hard-earned money.

In a press conference, Kejriwal also showed a video in this regard. 

"From evidence pouring in, demonitisation is turning out to be a huge scam. Will present evidence at 10am in a press conference," Kejriwal had said in a tweet early morning.

Kejriwal's allegations drew sharp response from the BJP  which accused him of rumour mongering.

Here is who said what on Kejriwal's allegations:

#Arvind Kejriwal is just trying to degrade this initiative taken by the government. Can he validate any of his claims: Satosh Kumar Gangwar, minister of state for finance
