Ranchi: Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal
on Friday sought to know why BJP president Nitin Gadkari did not
acknowledged civil rights activist Anna Hazare’s charges of
corruption in Gujarat.
BJP president Nitin Gadkari says he is with Anna Hazare.
And Anna Hazare says Gujarat is in grip of corruption. So
Gadkari should admit corruption in Gujarat and (go on a) fast
in Gujarat against corruption,`` Sibal said at a press
Asking the BJP to look into how yoga guru Ramdev had
`acquired` government land `paying peanuts`, he asked, Who
gave the land? Is it the chief ministers of Madhya Pradesh,
Uttarakhand and Jharkhand? ... The RSS should admit that they
are backing him.
Reminding the saffron party of the democratic values and
their importance to take other developmental initiatives on
priority basis, Sibal asked the BJP and the RSS not to create
an atmosphere in which growth could be blunted.
For Congress and the UPA, issues like health, right to
education, MNREGA, strengthening the public distribution
system and the Food Security bill, which is coming up, are the
real issues, because these initiatives alone can root out
poverty...so they (opposition) should not create any such
situation which could blunt financial growth, Sibal said.
