Ernakulm, Oct 30: BJP has said it will demand a white paper in the winter session of Parliament on how the government proposes to bring back the black money stashed abroad in foreign banks.
BJP leader L K Advani, addressing a big gathering here, said “in the winter session of Parliament which is likely to commence on November 21, we will demand that a white paper be presented in the House telling the world, the country and the people how the government proposes to bring back this (black) money.”
“If this money is bought back, our suggestion would be that it should be spent in the villages of India and not in cities”, he said.
Attacking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for reportedly promising to get back black money stashed abroad within 100 days of coming to power during the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, Advani said “nothing has been done in this regard so far”.
“In 2009 elections, the Prime Minister had said if we come to power, in 100 days we will move to get back all this money belonging to India. Not just 100 days, but 700 days have passed but nothing has been done on this account.”
