Patna: Describing the UPA as government
as mired in corruption, BJP on Monday took potshots at Congress
President Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and
Union Home Minister P Chidambaram while attacking all other
members of the union cabinet.
"Soniaji is the inspiring source of corruption, while
Manmohan Singh is a patron. Chidambaram and other members
in the Union cabinet are partners," Ananth Kumar, senior BJP
leader and in-charge of party Bihar affairs said here.
He was addressing `Sankhanad Samaroh` organised by the
BJP against corruption, price rise and autocratic style of
function of the Congress government.
Referring to alleged involvement of former Union
Minister A Raza, DMK MP Kanimojhi and Congress leader Suresh
Kalmadi in the 2G Spectrum scam and CWG irregularities, Kumar
said Chidambaram, Textile Minister Dayanidhi aran, Delhi Chief
Minister Sheila Dixit and an official in PMO Jarnail Singh
should also be prosecuted in these scams.
The BJP leader said Chidambaram should clarify his
position before the Supreme Court and CAG that why did he
allow the 2G spectrum allotment when he was Finance Minister.
Kumar alleged that the exchequer had been virually
looted to the tune of Rs 1.76 lakh crore in 2G Spectrum
case, Rs 67,000 crore in CWG irregularities and Rs 5.5 lakh
crore in S Band irregularities.
According to an estimate, a whopping sum of Rs 10.5
lakh crore as blackmoney was stashed away with the foreign
banks, he charged.
