New Delhi: Mounting a fresh attack on
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, senior BJP leader L K Advani
on Thursday said the Supreme Court rap on government on the issue of
blackmoney stashed in foreign banks ran contrary to PM`s
earlier assertions and vindicated his stand.
"When I had raised the issue in 2009, the Prime
Minister had dubbed my statements as an election stunt
and irresponsible. But after the Supreme Court observations
that Indian blackmoney stashed in foreign banks is a plunder
of country`s resources, the rejigged Cabinet in its first
meeting today was forced to discuss the issue," Advani said.
He said from allocation of 2G spectrum to Commonwealth
Games and Adarsh housing society scams, Government was facing
a series of corruption charges.

"The government is passing through the worst crisis of
its tenure," he said adding that he felt pity on the
government for where "it has reached".
