Gadkari questions PM`s role in spate of scams
Ranchi: BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Sunday
wondered whether Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had "silent
approval" of the series of scams his government was currently
facing and said nobody in the government was taking any
responsibility for all the wrong-doings.
"Doubts are being raised whether the spate of scams had
the prime minister`s silent approval...Manmohan Singh has
proved himself as ineffective and helpless as he kept his eyes
shut and remained silent as his cabinet colleagues indulged in
corruption," Gadkari said in a press release in Ranchi.
"The speciality of a democracy is accountability to the
people...the Manmohan Singh-led Congress Government has
sacrificed this speciality...no one in the government is ready
to take responsibility," he said.
One has lost count of the total money involved in scams
like 2G spectrum, CWG, Adarsh Housing, ISRO-Devas and
cash-for-vote, Gadkari said.
He asked as to why the government was shying away from
revealing names of those who stashed black money in foreign
banks even after the Supreme Court`s directive.
