Hingoli (Maharashtra): The BJP on Tuesday continued its
attack on Home Minister P Chidambaram over the 2G spectrum
allocation scam, saying he should face action for his alleged
role in the case.
"Former Telecom Minister A Raja is in jail in connection
with the scam, and Chidambaram, the then Finance Minister,
should also be made an accused," BJP General Secretary
Gopinath Munde said here.
"I am confident Chidambaram will be sent behind bars," he
Munde was speaking at an election rally organised for
Shiv Sena-BJP-RPI candidates contesting the Municipal Council
He said the newly-stitched alliance between Sena-BJP and
Republication Party of India (RPI) will usher in far-reaching
changes in the state politics in coming days.
The Deputy Leader of BJP in Lok Sabha criticised the UPA
government over FDI in multi-brand retail, saying the move was
aimed at "pleasing" America.
"If FDI in retail is allowed, nearly 20 crore small
businessmen and traders will be rendered jobless. That`s why
BJP has opposed FDI in the retail sector," he said.
