New Delhi, Apr 5 (ANI): Slamming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for its inability to curb corruption, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi has ridiculed the opposition party for the numerous instances of corruption during its rule, and said it should not be harping over what the UPA Government was doing or not doing.
Singhvi lashed out at senior BJP leaders for speaking on irrelevant subjects during a recent municipal rally.
He cited the names of former BJP President Bangaru Laxman and former minister Dilip Singh Judeo for their active role in patronising corruption.
"The BJP, its leaders, its president appear to have lost it. The BJP and its leaders including its president talk about everything except municipal issues at a municipal rally. They talked about corruption in a mechanical, meaningless manner. The BJP would do well to put it's own house in order before they venture into this territory," he said.
"They should first have sorted out their Bangaru Laxmans and their Judeos (Dilip Singh Judeo), their Yeddyurappas, and more importantly, they should have responded about the CAG report on Gujarat a few days ago. And even more importantly, about the CAG report in Bihar yesterday," he added.
He also said there was no truth to the newspaper report about two army units moving towards New Delhi in mid-January without notifying the government.
"There is not an iota of truth in these speculative, purely surmiseful conclusions. The Congress party stands for, and has over the 125 years of its existence, always stood for and created institutions. It is easy to destroy them, very difficult to create and nurture them. Those who speculate by innuendo or inference on such delicate and sensitive matters should realise, must realise the very serious damage they cause, howsoever unintentionally to our national fabric," added Singhvi.
Commentng on a World Bank report, which highlighted corruption and fraud in national highway projects funded by global moneylender, he said: "Yes, the report has come and irrespective of the fact whether lawmaker belongs to the Congress party or any other outfit, whatever is conclusion of the report, would be probed and action would follow. But the report still needs to be verified and more comments on it would follow before the final decision is taken. It involves the World Bank and rightful action would be taken in this regard. The NHAI would also see into the matter." (ANI)
