Tehelka, known for its high voltage revelations, has done the nation proud once more. It has released 15 names of the Indian swindlers who have black money stashed in the Swiss bank.
The German Govt gave our Congress led Govt a list of 18 people who have stashed billions of Rupees in tax heaven of Swiss banks. But Congress kept delaying revealing the names of Nation’s cheaters on the pretext of secrecy. Swiss Banks have said more than once that if the names are sought by a nation to pursue cases of tax evasion, then the names can be disclosed. But Congress preferred shielding those who have been hurting our country’s growth for decades. But what else could you expect from a Govt which has aided the growth of India’s biggest corruption scams in past few years.
Tehelka once again has helped bring out the guilty by publishing the names of people involved in tax evasion at Swiss banks. Although of the 18, Tehelka has released just 15 names for now, it’s now only a matter of time when the names of other three are disclosed as well. Of the remaining three names, one is said to be of a well know politician while another name is of a major Indian corporation.
The names revealed today is however expected to be just tip of the iceberg. Most of these names are suspected to have acted as a front for other big swindlers who can be politicians, bureaucrats or top notch businessmen. Remember, the actual list of Indian people having black money in Swiss banks is over 1400, but these 18 are just the names which were stolen from the databank of LGT Group, the Liechtenstein bank.
We just hope that the names of the people who have looted India for generations is brought out in the open and they are put to trial as soon as possible.
