Chennai: Targeting Congress over the issue of
corruption, BJP President Nitin Gadkari today alleged it had
"outsourced" DMK for "looting" the people`s money in the 2G
spectrum allocation.

"For the 2G spectrum scam, Congress had outsourced DMK for
making money with (former Telecom Minister) A Raja playing the
lead role and (Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M) Karunanidhi
masterminding it," he told a party rally here.

The year 2010 had become "a year of scandal" with scams in
2G, Commonwealth Games and Adarsh Housing Society and Bofors
case, Gadkari alleged and claimed the total money involved was
to the tune of Rs 2,50,000 crore which was three per cent of
the country`s GDP.

"They (Congress) just looted the people`s money by using
DMK as a commercial shop (on the 2G spectrum scam)..," he
alleged at the concluding rally of the 40-day yatra taken out
by state BJP President Pon Radha Krishnan across Tamil Nadu
demanding educational assistance to poor Hindu students.

Gadkari said BJP was not making any allegation on the
2G spectrum scam issue and was only quoting the CAG report.

On dynastic politics, he said though Congress leader Rahul
Gandhi had said there was no dynasty rule in India, "it was he
who had benefitted."

From Jawaharlal Nehru, Congress party had been headed by
Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. "It is a family
party", he charged.
