Congress had no desire to pursue Bofors case: CPI
New Delhi: Government`s move to end
investigations into the Bofors case has "exposed" Congress
dispensation`s will to fight corruption, CPI said on Friday.
"The last decade and a half has shown that the Congress
had no desire to go ahead with the Bofors case, when it came
too uncomfortably close to higher-ups within it," a resolution
adopted at the CPI National Executive meeting said.
Deliberating on the meeting`s proceedings, CPI general
secretary A B Bardhan said they felt that the government
"dragged its feet, intervened frequently and brazenly in the
entire process, did everything to weaken the case so that it
cannot stand the scrutiny of the courts in India and abroad".
"It has now shamelessly decided to drop it altogether.
This exposes Congress government`s will to fight corruption,"
The government has recently informed the Supreme Court
that it has decided to withdraw case against Italian
Businessmen Ottavio Quattrocchi.
