New Delhi: Charging the UPA government with
involvement in the various "scams" that have hit the
headlines, senior BJP leader LK Advani on Monday said people now
want the government to be held accountable for its actions.
"When the year 2010 had ended, I had lamented that the
year would go down in the Indian history as a year of scams.
It is the desire of the country to let 2011 end up as a year
of accountability," Advani told reporters here after hoisting
the national flag at his residence.
"If last year was the year of scams, then at the end of
this year, people should have the satisfaction that
answerability was sought for last year," he said.
The BJP parliamentary party chairman did not name the UPA
while referring to scams and refused to take questions on the
Prime Minister`s speech at Red Fort.
BJP president Nitin Gadkari was present when Advani
unfurled the national flag and took salute from the CRPF
guards posted at his official residence.
