New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday termed the Congress as a party that has transformed itself into an `allegation party`.
While commenting on the Vyapam scam where the Congress has apparently dragged Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharati`s name into it, he said, "Congress had earlier been a All India Corruption Congress, now it has turned itself into a party that levels allegation each day. It is not understanding the fact that the country has not given a mandate to listen to such non-serious and baseless allegations."
The Congress, however, had raised Union Minister Uma Bharti`s name in Madhya Pradesh`s Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) admissions scam. During a press conference, Congressspokesperson KK Mishra reportedly disclosed the call details of the central minister blaming her of using political influence for 15 admissions in government jobs.
The recruitment scam had reportedly involved manipulation in the selection process for government jobs conducted by the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB).
A Special Task Force has been constituted for an investigation into the Vyapam scam which had detained Laxmikant Sharma, a former state technical education minister, for interrogation.
The high profile teacher`s recruitment scam in Madhya Pradesh is being linked to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan`s wife, Sadhna Singh.
