Ram Jethmalani attacks Jaitley on black money
cancel

New Delhi: Senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani has written a fiery letter to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley hitting out at him for handling the black money issue in an inappropriate manner.

Jethmalani's letter is full of criticism. He said that the steps taken to deal with the black money issue were not right and accused Jaitley of not wanting the truth to come out.

The letter written Thursday said: "I strongly suspect that your conduct shows that you too like many others do not want the truth to come out. Your public statements ... on one day and next day are products of a troubled conscience and mental confusion; a deadly combination."

He said: "You are out to help the biggest criminals to escape."

In the letter, the senior lawyer urged Jaitley not to send the name of account holders to the Swiss authorities.

He said: "Send them to the SIT (Special Investigation Team) so that they can tell them what to do."

Referring to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government's stand in the court last week that it cannot make public the names of black money account holders in foreign banks due to the confidentiality clause under the Double Taxation Avoidance Treaty (DTAT) with some countries, he said the DTAT or any equivalent document is not to be used and cannot be used.

With his humour intact, Jethmalani ends the letter signing of as "Expelled BJP member".
