New Delhi:  The Congress Wednesday lashed out at the government on the issue of bringing back black money, saying it should come out with the entire list of names and not be vindictive.

“We want to know the entire list. Do not blackmail and threaten us. The Congress party is not going to succumb to any blackmailing,” party spokesperson Ajay Maken told the media.

He said the government should not indulge in half truths.

“The government should come out with all names. It should not be a vindictive list. All names should come,” he added.

Maken said the people of the country do not just want to know the names. “They are waiting to know how the money will come back to India.”

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Tuesday said the names of black money account holders will be made public soon.

“I can assure you there is no embarrassment I (BJP) will have when all the names are disclosed. There is some embarrassment the Congress party will have because of those names,” he said.
