NEW DELHI: Janata Dal (U) today raised the issue of Panama Papers in the Lok Sabha today with its member Kaushalendra Kumar asking the government to make public the names of Indians mentioned in it as it was a case of "tax evasion".
Kumar also accused the RBI Governor of making "contradictory" comments on the matter, alleging that he had said some of the money had gone there as per RBI rules.
"I want to tell the government that it should take legal action against these people. Their names should be made public. It is not clear so far how much serious the government is," he said in the Zero Hour, drawing support from some opposition members.
Taking a dig at the government, he said it had come to power on the promise of bringing back black money but it had "failed" to do so.
Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal hailed Dipa Karmakar at her feat of becoming the first India gymnast to qualify for the Rio Olymics and commenting that she did with little support from the government and sport bodies.
She urged the government to provide her with world-class facilities to help win a medal in the Olympics.
Ashwini Choubey (BJP) raised the issue of trains from Bihar running inordinately late and urged the Railway Minister to take corrective measures.
