Narendra Modi government after dilly dallying for some time has finally furnished, today, the 29th, October, 2014, the ‘full’ list of 627 account holders who have stashed black money to foreign banks, to the Supreme Court. This follows after the apex court severely rapped the Modi government for its failure to submit the full list despite its directives. The list was furnished in a sealed cover and the court ,with out opening has directed to hand over it to the Special Investigation Agencies.
Tunisia, the birth place of ’Arab Spring’ is likely to get a secular government, in sharp contrast to most of the other Arab countries. Indications are there that the secular party, Nida Tounes, may emerge as the largest single party, in the election, which the foreign observers have praised as landmark free elections. Surprisingly, the religious conservative party, ‘The Islamist Ennahda’ has already conceded defeat and congratulated their secular rival, Nida Tounes for edging out other parties. Leader of Nida Tounes, Beji Caid Essebsi, vowed to form a coalition with other parties to take the country forward.
The Supreme Court has severely criticised Narendra Modi government for failure to furnish full list of those who stashed black money to foreign banks. The Modi government had initially appointed a special investigation team to find out the black money account holders, but took a U-Turn,later pleading that the names of such black money account holders cannot be revealed due to the double taxation rules. This was the same stand taken by the earlier UPA government which was dubbed by BJP during the Lok Sabha election campaign.The government finally revealed only three names and this was slammed by the apex court asking the government whether it is shielding the black money account holders. This is a big set back to Narendra Modi government which is doing just the opposite to what they had promised.
