Arvind Kejriwal is out with his latest revelation. This time it is not directly targetted at any politician. Rather his target are the country's best-known businessmen and the Black money stashed in their Swiss accounts. According to Kejriwal, HSBC's Geneva branch has 700 accounts of Indian nationals.
Kejriwal claims that he has accessed a CD which has names of the businessmen with hawala money. Those on the list are:
Mukesh Ambani and his brother Anil both have Rs 100 crore each in their accounts. Their mother Kokilaben also has an account but no balance.Yash Birla too has an account without any money. Jet Airways chief Naresh Goyal has Rs. 80 crores while three members of the Dabur family have Rs 25 crores.
Kejriwal demaned a raid on these businessmen and their statements to be recorded. He challenged the businessmen to reveal their bank statements. He even demanded that an honest officer be in charge of the operation.
Kejriwal even accused the President of trying to protect these 700 people by introducing an amnesty scheme.
Kejriwal has demanded that the head of HSBC be arrested, suspend all HSBC banks operating in India and force them to reveal details of account holders. He appealed to the Indians working in HSBC to quit their jobs if the bank doesn't reveal the names of the 700 people.
Before signing off, the India Against Corruption activist said money goes out of the country through HSBC and the same money is pumped back into the country in the name of FII. He said most of the money that comes as foreign investment is actually black money.
