New Delhi, Oct 18: In the wake of the Centre's refusal to disclose the names of the leaders who had deposited money in banks abroad, Congress spokesperson Ajay Maken called the government a hypocrite. He pointed out that the same party, which was not in power in 2011 had questioned the Congress party, which was in ower then about the black money. "Why not now?" he said.

He said,"The way BJP used an issue for political gains,this has never been seen before. Why reluctance in revealing names, country has right to know." Calling the arguments of the government that it can release the names to SC but not to public due to double taxation baseless, Maken further said,"Congress today wants to know, why were they misleading people of the nation."

"The PM and his party members had made tall claims that they would bring back the black money stashed out in other countries within 100 days and deposit Rs 15 lakh in the name of each person. Where is my share of money? No one has received it yet and 100 days are also gone," he mocked.
