BJP demands early interrogation of Kalmadi
BJP demanded an early interrogation of Kalmadi for his alleged role in CWG scam.
Pune: BJP on Sunday demanded an early interrogation of Suresh Kalmadi for his alleged role in financial irregularities during the conduct of Commonwealth Games and said it wanted JPC to go into both 2G and CWG scams to unearth the truth.
Party General Secretary and MP Ravishankar Prasad said here,"Kalmadi has not been interrogated so far by the investigating agencies and we want this to happen as early as possible."
Prasad also criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, for his "inaction" in not stopping both the scams and alleged that there was a "conspiracy of silence" on part of Singh.
Prasad said Singh owed an answer to the nation as to why he failed to act to stop the biggest ever scam in independent India.
"BJP wants a JPC to be constituted to go into both 2-G and CWG scams. If we had not built up pressure in Parliament, A Raja would not have resigned," he added.
Asked whether BJP was adopting double standards on the issue of corruption by shielding Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyuruppa who is facing land grab charges, Prasad said, “The main issue there is de-notification of government land and the Lakayukta is conducting an inquiry into the whole matter".
