Gwalior: Union Minister of State for
Commerce and Industry Jyotiraditya Scindia has said that the
BJP has lost its moral right to attack Congress on the issue
of corruption since many of its leaders are facing graft
"Top BJP leaders including former party president Bangaru
Laxman, Dilip Singh Judeo and now former Karnataka Chief
Minister, B S Yeddyurappa and the Reddy brothers have been
indicted for corruption. They absolutely have no moral right
to talk of corruption against the Congress," the minister told
reporters here last evening.
On Advani`s `Janchetna Yatra` to take on the UPA on
issues of corruption and blackmoney, Scindia said that instead
of taking out a yatra, the senior BJP leader would do well if
he introspected on the state of affairs in his own party.
He said that as far as the Congress was concerned, it was
committed to weed out corruption through good governance and
effective legislation including the Lokpal Bill.
The young leader criticised the ruling BJP government in
Madhya Pradesh for its apathy towards completion of projects
which had been launched long back.
