The BJP had appointed a task force on assessing the amount of black money stashed by Indians in foreign banks and ways to bring it back. The report had alleged that Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi were among Indians who held Swiss bank accounts.
Sonia Gandhi wrote a letter to Advani denying the allegation and said that neither she nor her husband held Swiss bank accounts.
BJP leader L K Advani has apologised to Congress President Sonia Gandhi for the task force report. However, Advani also stated in his reply that the Gandhis should have denied this publicly when there were rumours that names of her family members could figure in the report
