Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacherjee on Sunday demanded that UPA government
take steps to bring back black money stashed in foreign banks
and make public details of the account holders.

"These ill-gotten money stashed in foreign banks
should be brought back to India and details of the account
holders must be made public," he told a Left Front rally here.
The money belonged to people and it must be
confiscated, he said.

Targetting Congress, he wondered what was preventing
the party from taking action. "Why is Congress sitting tight
over the issue? What they are afraid of?" he said.
"Black and white money are all in equal circulation.
The country`s money has been plundered and stashed in foreign
banks," he said.
