Non-pol people cannot bring change of rule: Sushma
Jaipur: Apparently having Anna Hazare in
mind, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Thursday said that non-political
people can lead movements but cannot bring a change of rule.
"There was a discussion that it seemed that everything
was moving towards non-political organisations. Non-political
people can lead movements but they cannot bring a change of
rule (satta parivartan). Because for this, the alternative
will have to be searched from within active politics," she
told a Jan Chetna Yatra rally here.
She, however, did not name Hazare.
"People have begun losing faith in politics and
politicians who face people`s mistrust. There is need for a
person whose reputation is spotless and who has earned trust
through his behaviour. I thank Advaniji for undertaking the
yatra," she said.
Swaraj also criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on
the issues of corruption and price rise.
"A person who is leading a corrupt government cannot
claim to be honest. If you are an economist then why don`t you
hear the voices against inflation," she asked.
In his speech, Advani said, "The public is indeed
troubled by corruption. But if there is a strong emotion
towards devotion to Ram then there is a strong emotion for the
rashtra also. And it is in the interest of the rashtra that
the governance should be clean and corruption free."
