Govt dismisses Kejriwal`s allegations
New Delhi: The government on Friday dismissed the allegations made by activist Arvind Kejriwal on the black money issue saying there was nothing new in the accusations and no evidence has been given to substantiate them.
"There is nothing new about the allegations. No evidence has been given," government sources said.
They said Parliament has already discussed the issue of black money in detail and government had responded to the debate.
"If necessary, the Finance Ministry will issue a statement at an appropriate time," the sources said.
Making fresh allegations, Kejriwal today accused multinational HSBC Bank of indulging in money laundering and claimed Ambani brothers, Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal and Congress MP Anu Tandon had parked their black money in its Geneva branch.
The Bank and the individuals have denied the charges.
Asked to comment the allegations, AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi said "we do not comment on unconfirmed reports."
