Patna: The BJP today asked Congress general
secretary Rahul Gandhi to speak on scams in 2G Spectrum
allocation, Commonwealth Games and the Adarsh Housing Society
in Mumbai instead of only targetting the NDA government in
Bihar for alleged corruption.
``Rahul in his election speeches had gone hammar and
tongs against the NDA government in Bihar alleging corruption,
but never spoke on corruption charges brought against his own
UPA government,`` BJP national spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudi
told reporters here.
He said that Rahul could no more remain silent on various
scams gripping the Centre and the Congress-ruled states and
insisted he must speak on the issues during his visit to Bihar
on November three, particularly on justification for
continuation of the Union Communications Minister A Raja in
the government after the Supreme Court`s rap to the CBI in 2G
The Congress leader should also reflect on corruption
by central ministries in the conduct of the Commonwealth games
last month with an expenditure of Rs 65,000 crore.
The BJP spokesman also asked Rahul to explain the
continuance of Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan and
Union ministers Vilas Rao Deshmukh and Sushil Kumar Shinde
in spite of their complicity in the Adarsh Housing Society
controvery in Mumbai.
The BJP leader also demanded resignation of Karnataka
Governor H R Bhardwaj for his alleged partisan role in
destabilising the BJP government by recommending to the
Centre the dismissal of the state government last month.
