New Delhi: "Those living in glass houses should not throw stones at others."
This was Congress` message to Uttar Pradesh Chief
Minister Mayawati who had dubbed the party as "mother of
corruption" in the country.
Party general secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters
that it will be better, if Mayawati does not talk of
corruption as she is among those Chief Ministers against whom
case is on in Supreme Court about disproportionate assets.
"Since Mayawati has become active in politics till
today she has accumulated enormous assets through open
corruption," alleged Singh, who is in-charge of party affairs
in Uttar Pradesh.
Besides Mayawati, the former Chief Minister against
whom disproportionate assets case pending is Mulayam Singh
Yadav of the Samajwadi Party.
Alleging that her rule has seen worsening of the law
and order situation, Singh wondered as to why the Chief
Minister was apprehensive to launch a judicial enquiry into
the Bhatta Parsul incident.
His statement came close on the heels of Mayawati
launching a scathing attack on Congress and BJP on the issue
of land acquisition, saying farmers in states ruled by the two
parties were agitated over poor compensation.
Addressing BSP workers from Delhi at the Talkatora
Indoor Stadium here, the BSP chief alleged that Congress is
considered as the "mother of corruption" in the country.
