"A drama is being enacted in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.
One party is protecting and encouraging them and giving them
the licence to loot UP. Other is welcoming them on the eve of
elections," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.
Alleging that there was a tacit understanding between
the BJP and the BSP, he remarked that "they are birds of the
same feather who flock together".
He alleged that the "distinguished gallery" of such
leaders built by the BJP was not limited to Kushwaha alone.
"The distinguished gallery includes Mr Satish, Mr Sakshi
Maharaj, Mr Badshah Singh, and Mr Dhananjay Singh and there
are many more names," he said.
Noting that the BJP and the BSP understand each others?
culture, he alleged that while one practises utter hypocrisy
by seeking to expel them a few weeks before election, the
other welcomes them.
Taking a dig at the BJP, he said that there was no need
for the party to carry a delegation to the President of India
to shed "crocodile tears" on the Lokpal.
"The BJP should have an internal Lokpal and an internal
Ombudsman which carefully scrutinizes and screens the
applicants to only allow the corrupt to get through and then
they should go out and give lecture to the nation," he said.
New Delhi: Congress on Friday saw a tacit
understanding between BJP and BSP in the induction of tainted
former Uttar Pradesh minister Babu Singh Kushwaha in the
saffron party saying the two parties were birds of the same
feather who flock together.
