Says KejriwalNEW DELHI, Feb 9 : Taking cognisance of a newspaper report, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Monday took pot shots at the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party over black money probe.
The AAP convener lambasted both national parties for doing 'nothing' against those who have stashed black money abroad.
Questioned BJP's inaction, the AAP leader said why isn't the party taking any action against the HSBC officials as the US did.
Meanwhile, AAP member Atishi Marlena said that Kejriwal's stand has been vindicated by with the newspaper report.
She also accused the Modi government of not taking the black money probe seriously.
Marlena wrote on her Twitter account: "Many of these were revealed in 2012 by Arvind Kejriwal, yet no action was taken by successive govts against them. Was there collusion?
In 2012, Arvind Kejriwal had revealed Swiss bank account numbers of the Ambani brothers. Today's list has their names too!
An Indian newspaper has revealed that the number of Indians holding black money in Swiss Bank are actually double than what has been obtained by the Indian government.
In case of suspected black money abroad, the disclosure related to a list of 628 Indians, who figured on a list of HSBC account-holders that India had got from the French government. However, the newspaper, in its investigative report has said that 1,195 Indians are holding account.
