In a huge setback to the Modi government, Supreme Court ordered the central government on Tuesday to reveal all the names of black money account holders by Wednesday.
Supreme Court slams the central government for trying to protect black money account holders in Swiss Banks.
According to reports, the Chief Justice of India while passing the order told the attorney general Mukul Rohatgi, "Dont tell us to modify our earlier orders."
The apex court in a snub to the BJP government, told them not to put a protective umbrella for black money account holders.
"You do not have to take interest in people (having foreign bank accounts), SIT will take care of it. We can't leave the issue of bringing back black money to government. It will never happen during our time," top court told the government on Tuesday.
Making it clear that a new regime cannot dictate terms of modifications to the court, the top court told the petitioner, "You do not do anything. Just pass information of account holders to us and we will pass order for further probe. New regime at Centre can't ask modification of order when it was passed in an open court and accepted by the government."Source: FirstPost
