    Half of money stashed abroad belongs to Congress leaders: Maneka Gandhi


    BAREILLY: BJP MP Maneka Gandhi has alleged that half of India's black money stashed in Swiss banks belonged to ministers, leaders and supporters of the Congress party.

    The BJP leader, while talking to reporters on Sunday night, also alleged that the Congress had kept CBI in its locker and used the agency as and when it required. http://defenceforumindia.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=45

    She also slammed the Congress party's attitude towards Baba Ramdev and social activist Anna Hazare, calling it "undignified."

    "As money of Congress leaders is stashed in Swiss banks, therefore the party wants to curb every voice being raised against it," Maneka alleged.

    Terming Anna Hazare's proposed agitation from August 16 as a "struggle for economic freedom," she said that whatever her party decided at the all-party meet on Lokpal Bill, likely to be held next month, would be acceptable.

    SOniya Gandhi is able to control congress and everybody respect her because of control over black money stashed abroad. If there is no black money with soniya gandhi congress will see lots of chaos and all this party discipline will go down the drain.

    Well said. Money power is the real power. Jagan, who is supposedly leading the revolt against Congress in AP, is doing so the might of his ill-begotten money(from mines), when his father was at the helm.
    In short, If the other congressmen acquire same money power as Gandhis, then they will revolt and start their own party on the lines of Pawar and Jagan. The present gen of Dynasty lack mass-appeal, charisma and reputation. Even their better pedigree is giving them no aura...

    Nothing but a lose comment from MG. I have always maintained that majority of the black money abroad is of businessmen, industrialist and the likes to evade tax. Look at IPL. Majority holding companies are listed in tax havens. This is how black money is channeled back to India.

    What's the use of parking big money in bank when you can make more outside of it? All such money does come back to India, more money made of it and again tax evaded and money parked back into foreign banks till the next big money making opportunity comes.

    Money of corrupt politicians would be a fraction of all that.

    Exactly. It's all so hypocrtical. Black market in India by some estimate is 50% of the GDP. I feel it might be even higher. There is no big corporation that does not evade tax. You can evade tax within the laws!!! That's how the laws are. There are always technical loopholes that people exploit.

    When you talk about black money when people buy houses. I think that's what saved India when real estate went bust in the west. If your own black money is sunk into your house, you will not default on the rest of the "white" loan.

    I am sure you have proof of your claim of every politician and babu having black money abroad. Waiting forward to seeing it.

    yususf, just a hint most of the bureaucrats children are studying abroad. Did all of them 100% scholarship. We have lots of members who are studying or have studied abroad, they could shed some light on how much money their parents had to shell out.

    Maneka Gandhi, how can I forget her. When I was a little kid she banned the use of wood on railway tracks. My parents told me she wanted to save the trees. I had great admiration for her administrative capabilities but recently she and her son has become delusional and hate mongers.
