Indore: Accusing BJP of adopting double
standards on corruption issue, Congress General Secretary
Digvijay Singh said on Sunday that the saffron party`s B S
Yeddyurappa continues to remain Karnataka Chief Minister even
after his involvement in a land scam.

"We on 2 G spectrum issue took the Telecom Minister A
Raja`s resignation. But, even after direct evidence against
Yeddyurrappa over his involvement in allotment of land to his
close people, he has not resigned as Karnataka Chief
Minister," Singh told reporters here.

Singh said that the Congress did not spare time to take
resignation from Ashok Chavan after his image got sullied in
Adarsh Society issue.

On the contrary, he said that BJP has not initiated
action against corrupt Reddy brothers because they allegedly
have protection of their senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj.

The Congress general secretary said that his party has
always remained sensitive over corruption issues but the BJP
speaking loudly against corruption decorates its leaders Dilip
Singh Judeo and Bangaru Laxman caught taking bribe in cameras,
with plum posts.

He rubbished BJP`s charges of corruption against Centre
saying they were hollow.

Singh said that he sticks to his demand of a high level
inquiry into the BJP President Nitin Gadkari`s property.

Taking a jibe at Gadkari, he said,"Has he won a lottery
draw or his relative has left a secret fortune for him? It
should be probed how he had become the master of such a big
property."
