NEW DELHI, Oct 22 � Congress today asked the Modi Government not to resort to �blackmail� on the issue of naming blackmoney holders and dared it to come out with full information without indulging in �selective leakage�, reports PTI.

A day after Arun Jaitley�s remarks that disclosure of names of those holding illicit foreign accounts will embarrass Congress, party general secretary Ajay Maken said Government should desist coming out with �half truths� and �selective leakage�.

�Congress is not going to be blackmailed under any such threat...Do not try to blackmail us. Stricter possible action should be taken against whoever is involved in it but that should not be inspired by vindictiveness and it should also not be half truths,� he told reporters.

The issue of black money has led to a war of words between the ruling BJP and Congress.

The Modi government, which promised to bring back black money stashed by Indians in foreign banks, toed the line of UPA regime by informing the Supreme Court on October 17 that it cannot disclose such details given by countries with which India has double taxation avoidance agreement(DTAA).

As Congress accused the BJP government of �practising �hypocrisy� on the issue, Jaitley yesterday said, �The names (of black money account holders) will be public shortly... 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�.

Reacting sharply to Jaitley�s remarks, Maken said, �There is no need to blackmail Congress. Whatever names they have, they should reveal and act as they have a government. They should not try to blackmail us.
