Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit despite Shunglu Committee
Senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu also questioned Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh for maintaining silence on the Shunglu
report on irregularities in projects executed for the
Commonwealth Games and sought immediate removal of Dikshit.
He said the Congress was always questioning BJP`s
resolve to fight corruption by raking up the issue of
Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa.
"We did it in Karnataka. We told the Chief Minister
that he cannot continue in the post after the Lokayukta
report. We swung into action immediately. Why does not
Congress do it in Delhi? Why these double standards?" he
Naidu, who was addressing the `monthly meeting` of
Delhi BJP, also sought answers from the Congress on why it
"protects people involved in corruption".
The Shunglu Committee "indicted" Dikshit for
irregularities in CWG projects, but the Prime Minister chose
to remain silent on the issue.
The Congress did not take any action against Delhi PWD
Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan, whose dismissal was recommended by
"She should have been dismissed long back. Why is she not removed? The Prime Minister should give answer to these
questions to the people," he said.
Naidu said BJP workers in Delhi should expose the
Congress government by educating people about its "misdeeds".
