In India, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has accused the government of helping black money hoarders with an amendment to the income tax law, saying half of the unaccounted cash would now be returned to them.

Talking to media outside Lok Sabha on Wednesday, he said the government has given 50% of the black money back to hoarders again.

The Taxation Laws Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha, providing a window to legalize black money after paying tax on the amount.
