Let us bring back our money!

Here is a good article on black money being kept in tax heaven banks like Swiss Bank. Author concludes saying only we countrymen, can bring back that money. But the question remains is How? As most of the politicians might be involved in some way or other, there will be a collective effort from all the political parties to make sure that no such activity would happen which will expose their (ill) wealth. Definitely we need people like General Sani Abacha of Nigeria, Alberto Fujimori of Peru and Ferdinand Marcos of Philippines.

I remember Shri Rajiv Dixit of Bharath Bachao Aandolan had started an initiative to collect the signatures from people of India in support of getting the account details of Indians from tax heavens banks. In fact, I was also involved in that campaign and I had collected more than 500 signatures. The aim was to collect 1 crore signatures and present it to the then President of India Shri APJ Kalam.

At least, one can contribute towards this by educating / making people aware of such corruption. Like I did, you also can blog such articles or send it to your friends circle.
