The BJP on Monday demanded that the list of those who had benefitted from former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda's alleged hawala transactions should be disclosed.
"The government should make public the list of people who have benefitted from profits of crime and corruption," senior BJP leader Arun Jaitely told reporters in New Delhi.
He said the disclosure was necessary as voters had a right to know about these people ahead of the assembly elections.
Jaitley said the BJP feared that since Jharkhand was under President's Rule, the Centre could influence the investigating agencies to protect people who are alliance partners of UPA.
"The diary of Madhu Koda is a list of beneficiaries. The case should reach a logical conclusion and not end up in the media as mere news reports," he said.
Income Tax teams have been conducting raids at the residences of Koda and his associates and sealing properties in connection with the alleged hawala transactions and illegal investments case.
The IT department had claimed that evidence of Rs 2,000 crore in hawala transaction and illegal investments were found by its sleuths in searches.
