Kejriwal exposes list of black money holders, alleges 'Govt. inability'
Continuing the revelations of wrongdoings by prominent people, activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal on Friday raked up the issue of black money and alleged that the government was incapable to stop the practice.
Claiming to have a list of 700 Indians having accounts in HSBC's branch in Geneva, Kejriwal said that a senior Congress leader had provided the information to enable the 'expose' by the Indian Against Corruption (IAC).
Kejriwal said both the Congress Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have joined hands to spread corruption.
"Government doesn't want to bring back black money stashed in Swiss banks abroad. The government has a list of 700 people having accounts in Swiss banks," he said.
Kejriwal claimed that Mukesh Ambani has Rs. 100 crores, Anil Ambani has Rs. 100 crores, Sandeep Tandon - former IRS, ED official - who raided Reliance has Rs. 125 crores, Reliance Industries Rs. 200 crores, Sandeep Tandon's wife Anu, who is now Congress MP from Unnao, has Rs. 125 crores, Motech Software Private Ltd (Reliance Group company) - Rs. 2,100 crores, Kokila Dhirubhai Ambani has an account but in December 2006 it had no balance, Naresh Goyal has Rs. 80 crores.
He further claimed that three members from Dabur have accounts totalling Rs. 25 crores.
"Yashovardhan Birla has an account, but in December 2006 it has no balance. CBI had said there is Rs. 25 lakh crores - these 700 names account for only Rs. 6000 crores," he said.
Kejriwal, who parted ways with Anna Hazare, also alleged that the UPA Government-led by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has turned out to be the biggest economic threat to India.
Kejriwal has so far targetted President Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid, BJP President Nitin Gadkari and the Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance group.
