Chandigarh/New Delhi, Apr 21 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday criticized the remark made by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh t the cvil Service Day that the government would onot indulge in "witch hunt" against them in the name of fighting corruption.
Speaking to mediapersons here, BJP leader Rajiv Prasad Rudy criticized the remark made by the Prime Minister.
"May be he was forgetting that whatever is the current situation of the country, his government is responsible for it and he was making the bureaucrats its scapegoat for the shortcomings of this government. This is very saddening and unfortunate because to blame the bureaucrats for its shortcomings shows that this government has failed to deliver," said Rudy.
Meanwhile, Former Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) director Joginder Singh, has agreed with Prime Minister.
"I completely agree with him on theoretical grounds but this government is itself a doctor and it is also the patient. Whatever the Prime Minister says, his own ministers do not listen to it. If you take the example of the 2G scam, he had said that the interest of the nation should be protected but nobody paid attention to it," said Singh.
"So, when his own ministers do not listen to him then bureaucrats would also run after to keep their senior officers and ministers happy so that they can get a job after 5 years even after retirement," he added.
Joginder Singh further said that there was need to curb the rising corruption and ensure that the bureaucrats are able to work without fear.
"Unless you can check the corruption, unless you can take away the massive layers of security after security to the civil servants, country will be stuck up. It is only an excuse that political decisions hamper the growth. Whatever decisions have already been taken they should be implemented here but unfortunately there is total lack of will on the part of the government to punish the guilty," said Singh. (ANI)
