In his fresh expose against the 'corrupt' in the Indian system, activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal raked up the issue of blackmoney at a press meet in New Delhi on Friday afternoon.
Kejriwal said HSBC's Geneva branch has accounts of 700 Indians. He said France had given this list to the central government five years ago. The figures are till 2006.
Kejriwal said the names include:
1. Mukesh Ambani – Rs 100 crore.
2. Anil Ambani – Rs 100 crore
3. Botex Software Pvt Ltd (Company has shareholding by Reliance) – Rs 2100 crore
4. Reliance Industries – Rs 500 crore
5. Late Sandeep Tandon (former IRS officer)– Rs 125 crore. (Kejriwal said Tandon was close to Mukesh Ambani. His two sons are also in the reliance. His wife Anu Tandon has Rs 125 crores too, Kejriwal said. She is the Congress MP from Congress. Kejriwal also said she is a core group member of Rahul Gandhi)
6. Kokila Dhirubhai Ambani has no money but has an account.
7. Naresh Goyal - Rs 80 crore
In his last expose on October 31, Kejriwal had termed RIL's D-6 block in the Krishna Godavari (KG) basin deal as a "classic case of crony capitalism" and said both the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and Congress-led UPA governments were responsible.
Asserting that the government is succumbing to illegitimate demands of Reliance Industries, Kejriwal had said Mukesh Ambani is running the country and not Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
"Who is running the country? It seems that Ambani is running the country," said Kejriwal, pointing out the silence of Singh.
He had demanded that Reliance should be stopped from exploiting national wealth and an end should be put to "crony capitalism".
Kejriwal had earlier targetted Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra's land deals, the then Law Minister and present External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid of allegedly misusing funds allotted to his NGO and BJP president Nitin Gadkari.
