Graft in high offices should be fought vigorously: Dasgupta
Kolkata: CPI MP Gurudas Dasgupta on Saturday said he was unaware of the constitutional aspect of Karnakata Governor H R Bhardwaj granting sanction to prosecute Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa but underlined the need to fight corruption in high offices vigourously.
"I am not aware of the constitutional niceties, but corruption should be fought more vigorously if people in high positions are involved," Dasgupta, the General Secretary of All India Trade Union Congress said.
"It is not only a legal question, but a moral question also. In the present scenario when corruption is a very serious problem in India I will welcome every step, whoever may take it, to bring to book whosoever found to be involved in corruption, howsoever high one may be," he said.
On price rise he said an umbrella coalition of trade unions, including INTUC, will hold a march to Parliament on February 23 and submit a memorandum to the Lok Sabha Speaker.
"We will not meet the Prime Minister and place a memorandum. The Prime Minister never looks into the issues of the people," he alleged.
