Trinamool Congress today demanded that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) must come clean on black money and reveal names in one go, and said that "selective leaks, rumour-mongering and innuendo" will not do.

"Who is the government trying to protect in the black money scandal Is it playing politics to blackmail the culprits BJP ministers are not being transparent," the party said in a statement on its website.

"The Black Money Scandal: Another one in the long list of promises made by BJP and now broken," the statement said, adding, "So, finally... the cat is out of the bag. Looks like the BJP is petrified about belling 'the black money cat'."

Names of two leading businessmen including Pradip Burman, a promoter of Dabur group, and a Goa-based mining company along with its five Directors were today disclosed to the Supreme Court by the government which has launched prosecution against them as part of its drive to unearth blackmoney abroad.
