Goa Congress dubs black money disclosure as selective blackmailing

Opposition Congress in Goa on Monday termed Narendra Modi-led BJP government's disclosure of names of those allegedly holding illegal money abroad as "selective blackmailing of a few people", and dared Centre to reveal all names on the list at once.

 Panaji: Opposition Congress in Goa on Monday termed Narendra Modi-led BJP government's disclosure of names of those allegedly holding illegal money abroad as "selective blackmailing of a few people", and dared Centre to reveal all names on the list at once.

"We dare Modi government to disclose in one slot all the 700 names which are in the list as claimed by BJP," Goa Pradesh Congress Committee Spokesman Sunil Kawthankar told a press conference here.

The Centre today filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court disclosing the names of eight people against whom it has started prosecution for allegedly stashing black money in foreign banks.

Goa company, Timblo Private Limited, and its five Directors -- Mrs Radha S Timblo, Chetan Timblo, Rohan Timblo, Mrs. Anna Timblo and Mrs Mallika Timblo -- figured in a 16-page affidavit filed in the court.

"We want central government to come out with entire list and chargesheet it. Why government is trying to come out with selective list?," he questioned.

Kawthankar alleged that central government is releasing the list as per its "convenience".

Claiming that the revelation is mere an "eye-wash", the spokesman said that Congress was closely monitoring the action of the Modi-led BJP government.
