Govt returning 50% of black money to hoarders: Rahul Gandhi
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 percent of the black money back to hoarders again, he said outside Parliament.

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.
