Nation-wide demo by BJP on May 12 against "misuse" of CBI

BJP will hold demonstrations in state capitals across the country on May 12 against "misuse" of CBI by the Congress-led UPA government.

New Delhi: BJP will hold demonstrations in
state capitals across the country on May 12 against "misuse"
of CBI by the Congress-led UPA government.

"Our state unit leaders will hold demonstrations in state
capitals on May 12 against misuse of CBI by the government to
garner support for cut-motions in Lok Sabha and arrest of
police officers in Gujarat in the Sohrabuddin encounter case,
which is very demoralising for the police," a senior BJP
leader said.

A delegation of BJP MPs had submitted a memorandum to
President Pratibha Patil yesterday alleging that the
government was misusing CBI against opposition leaders and
shielding its own leaders.

Earlier, on May 6 these MPs had held a demonstration
inside Parliament House complex on the issue.

The main opposition alleged that at the behest of the
government, the CBI was going slow in the disproportionate
assets cases against SP Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, RJD leader
Lalu Prasad and BSP supremo Mayawati in lieu of their support.
