Kolkata: Senior BJP leader L K Advani on Sunday said he had not seen a central government functioning
like the way it was at present, hinting at the corruption
scandals involving the government.
``I have seen all governments starting from Pandit
Jawaharlal Nehru and I have not seen any government running
in this manner,`` Advani, who was in the city to observe the
110th birth anniversary of Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, founder
of Jan Sangh, precursor to today`s BJP, told reporters.
Asked to comment on the absence of a cabinet minister in
the important portfolio of Railways, Advani said, ``It is not
a question of Railways only, but every common man is asking if
this government will drag along in this fashion till 2014.``
Referring to West Bengal, Advani said during the election
campaign he had predicted that change was inevitable and the
change had indeed come.
Advani said during a visit to the residence of Dr Shyama
Prasad Mukherjee in south Kolkata that the death of the leader
had still remained a mystery and that no `inquiry` had been
conducted into his demise.
``Today is a very important day for me. I met Dr
Mukherjee last in April-May, 1953 and shortly after that the
great leader decided to undertake his journey to Kashmir where
he was arrested. He died under mysterious circumstances and
there was no enquiry conducted into his death,`` Advani said.
