Patna: Bihar Congress chief Choudhary
Mehboob Ali Kaiser on Saturday said erstwhile BJP governments had
taken no initiatives to bring back the blackmoney stashed
in foreign banks.
"The erstwhile governments of saffron party did nothing
to bring back the blackmoney... they even failed to write a
simple letter to any foreign country in this
connection", Kaiser told reporters.
He, however, claimed that the Congress-led UPA government
at the Centre was `serious` to bring the black money back from
Swiss and other foreign banks.
Kaiser also lambasted the BJP for allegedly trying to
shield its Karnataka and Gujarat Chief Ministers despite
serious charges against them.
Referring to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar`s demand for
securing special state category to Bihar, he said if the state
government was really serious for mobilising investments, it
should have given the tax concessions on the pattern of
the ones offered by the states like Uttrakhand and Himachal

in Bihar more strong and vibrant henceforward", he said.
To another query, Kaiser said he had constituted an
ad-hoc disciplinary committee to recommend action against the

fortnight for necessary action", he added.
