Activist Arvind Kejriwal today asked the government whether the names of industrialists he named as having accounts in HSBC Bank in Geneva were part of the list of 700 people handed over to the authorities by France.
Posing questions to Finance Minister P Chidambaram, he said the country wants to know from him why the government was "applying" different yardsticks while investigating the matter as only some people are raided while others are let off.
Kejriwal had yesterday made fresh allegations that HSBC Bank was indulging in money laundering and claimed Ambani brothers, Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal and Congress MP Anu Tandon had parked black money in its Geneva branch.
All those who were named by Kejriwal had denied the allegations.
He also alleged the government was saving HSBC and how could people believe that government will do a fair probe.
"If US government can firmly deal with such banks, why can't Indian governmen do the same"? he said.
