Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu has demanded that the Union Government immediately reveal names of persons and politicians, who allegedly have links with hawala dealer Hasan Ali, currently facing a probe by the Enforcement Directorate.

Reacting to reports that Hasan Ali, who allegedly amassed thousands of crores of illegal wealth, had links with some top politicians of Andhra Pradesh, including a former Chief Minister, he said the Centre should publicise the names.

There were reports in some national television channels this morning that the ED probing Hasan Ali's case filed a report in the Supreme Court claiming he had links with a former AP Chief Minister and a film star-turned-politician.

Mr. Naidu pointed out that Ali had feared a threat to his life after he revealed names of persons he had links with.

"How could a mere horse racer amass thousands of crores of rupees? All this happened during the UPA tenure only. It needs to be thoroughly probed," the TDP chief said.

What was preventing the Congress, which was in power both at the Centre and in the state for the past seven years, from taking action against Ali and revealing his illicit links, Mr. Naidu questioned.
