BJP hits back at Cong on issue of Yeddy`s arrest

BJP on Sunday said no action has been taken against the Delhi Chief Minister despite a CAG report on Commonwealth Games.

Hoshangabad (MP): Under attack from Congress
over BS Yeddyurappa`s arrest, BJP on Sunday said while the former
Karnataka Chief Minister resigned immediately after being
named by the Lokayukta, no action has been taken against the
Delhi Chief Minister despite a CAG report on Commonwealth
Games.

"When the Lokayukta report was out, the BJP Parliamentary
Board asked Yeddyurappa to resign. And he did. On the other
hand despite Shunglu Committee and CAG reports against Sheila
Dikshit no action has been taken," party`s chief spokesperson
Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters here.

He said Delhi Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan was bailed out by
the Home Ministry despite an adverse report by the state
Lokayukta.

Prasad also claimed that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was
supporting Home Minister P Chidambaram even though "new
evidences" are emerging against him in the 2G case.

"First he said (former Telecom Minister) A Raja was
innocent, now he is in jail," he said.

Prasad was replying to a volley of questions on the arrest
of Yeddyurappa on graft charges at a time when BJP leader L K
Advani was undertaking Jan Chetna Yatra against corruption.
