Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today accused the government of helping black money hoarders with the amendment to the income tax law, saying half of the unaccounted cash would now be returned to them.

The government has given 50 per cent of the black money back to hoarders again, he said outside Parliament.

The Taxation Laws (2nd Amendment) Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha yesterday, providing a window to legalise black money after paying tax on the amount post-demonetisation. As per the Bill, those who disclose black money to banks will have to pay 50 per cent tax, including surcharge and penalty.

Asked about the walkout by the opposition MPs in the Lok Sabha, Rahul said, “There is a practice in Parliament that whenever someone dies we respect them. This is for the first time that there was no such obituary offered for those soldiers who had died (in Nagrota attack). So the Opposition walked out.”

Opposition members walked out of the Lok Sabha as their demand for an obituary reference on the soldiers who died in the terror attack on army camp in Jammu was rejected by the Speaker on the grounds that final details were yet to emerge.

Countering Rahul’s charges, Information and Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said, “It is unfortunate that Congress is doing politics over the issue involving defence of the country.”

“The Speaker informed that combing operations are underway in Nagrota. Once operations are over, tribute will be paid in the House to the soldiers,” he said.

Taking on Congress, Naidu said, “People of the nation hate such small politics. Congress party walked out during question hour and then came back. Congress neither wants any discussion nor wants House to function as they are scared of being exposed. It’s an insult to Nagrota martyrs.”

      yes, and 50% to the poor for building schools hospitals and other basic infrastructure in small towns and villages. unlike the 2G scam , commonwealth games scam, coal scam , fodder scam in which the money meant for the poor was looted by the UPA government. It looks like a clical case of Robinhood stories where modi is forcing the ders to voluntarily share 50% of their wealth with the poor and needy. what is wrong in it ? pappu. your great gfather created a problem of kashmir ? neither your gmother nor your father and your dumb uncle " keep guessing" Dr. Manmohan Singh were able to solve it. we the people of India are sure that under the dynamic leadership of Modi sahab we will be able to find a solution. See the immediate effect of demonetization stone pelting has ended and strikes by hurriyat are gone. just continue crying ...... ha ha ha

        When entire country is only having 26 RBI BANKS and asking all needy to queue up before to exchange their preserved notes is really incredible. What happens if millions venture out and line up before these banks?Will it not create law and order problems for the states. Will any collapse lead to imposition of president's rule? Thomas Mathew
