Black money case: Swamy questions Centre's move to disclose selective names

BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy
New Delhi, Oct 27: Senior BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy has criticised NDA Government's move for disclosing selective names in black money case.

He said that he does not know why the NDA Government is not disclosing all names in the black money case. "There is no hindrance of law to disclosing entire list of account holders. Don't know why government is disclosing selective names," Subramanian Swamy was quoted as saying in reports.

Swamy said that the Government should disclose the entire list.

The Modi Government on Monday revealed three names in connection with black money case.

Following the Supreme Court's statement that the government can file affidavit revealing names of black money account holders, the Centre gave names of three business tycoons.

The three names are -- Pradip Burman, Director of Dabur Group, Pankaj Chimanlal Lodhia, Rajkot based bullion trader and Radha S Timblo, a Goa based miner.

The Government in the affidavit said it has no intention to hold back any information or the names it has received from the foreign Governments of Indian citizens holding undisclosed accounts in foreign banks.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu had earlier on Monday permitted the filing of the affidavit after Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi mentioned the matter before the court on Monday morning.
