White paper on black money disappointing: BJP
New Delhi, May 21 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) dismissed as "disappointing" the government's white paper on black money Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee tabled in the lok Sabha Monday.
Addressing a press conference here, BJP leader Jaswant Singh said Monday the white paper was like a "bikini" which "hides the essential and reveals the unessential".
"It is a disappointing document... It is a missed opportunity towards taking a step towards cleansing the country's public life and regenerating vigour in our economy," he said.
"There is no quantification of black money; it does not give any names; nor does it give steps the government will take to bring the money back," Singh said.
The government Monday released the much-awaited white paper on black money, which makes a strong pitch for setting up the lokpal and lokayuktas but carries no official estimate of the illicit money stashed by Indians abroad.
The paper quotes figures released by different agencies.
