Ambala: BJP workers on Friday burnt the effigy
of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in front of civil secretariat
here, to protest the alleged purchase of MPs by the UPA
government in 2008 to win the vote of confidence.

Vir Kumar Yadav, general secretary of state BJP while
addressing the party workers said that Prime Minister should
tender his resignation on moral grounds.

Later talking to media persons he said that Haryana unit
of BJP will launch a state-wide campaign against corruption,
black money and price hike.

all the districts from April 6 to 15.

the Wikileaks between the US Embassy in New Delhi and
Washington in which it was alleged that Congress had kept Rs
50-60 crore for buying MPs to vote in favour of the UPA-I.
