New Delhi, Jan 17 (Agencies): In the wake of a former Swiss banker's revelations that some Asians were among 2,000 account holders in his bank, BJP today asked the government to make public names of Indians among them.

The party also claimed that the information had already been provided to the government by Germany.

"We are interested in the names from India and the entire country expects that those who have looted public money and invested abroad in Swiss bank accounts, their names should
also be exposed," BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said.

Rudolf Elmer, a former employee of Swiss bank Julius Baer, leaked details of 2,000 high net-worth people holding accounts in the bank to Wikileaks. The individuals involved are from US, Britain and Asia.

Wikileaks founder Julius Assange, appeared in front of the media alongside Elmer, and has said they will make these 2,000 names public in future.

Prasad alleged that the UPA government had shown reluctance to reveal these names to the Supreme Court though "Germany has already sent the names to it".

"Therefore, we expect that this should come about quickly and let the nation know who has done what service for the nation or personal enrichment," he said.

BJP has launched a campaign against the Manmohan Singh government for failing to keep its promise of initiating action on bringing back black money stashed abroad within 100 days of coming to power.
 
The principal opposition has demanded that the government should at least make the names of these Indian account holders public and wondered why the government was not doing so.
