Badaun (UP): Taking a swipe at Rahul Gandhi
amid the raging controversy on corruption issue, BJP MP Maneka
Gandhi today said who would "believe" the Congress general
secretary when his party leaders were facing graft charges.

"When all the corruption charges are levelled against the
Congress leaders, what Rahul would says in such a situation
and who will believe him?" Maneka replied when asked to
comment on the AICC general secretary`s "silence" on Anna
Hazare`s anti-graft campaign.

The Aonla MP said that she was of the opinion that the
Prime Minister, bureaucracy and judiciary should come under
the purview of Lokpal Bill.

Maneka said that Varun had participated in Hazare`s
campaign in his personal capacity.

On opposition parties not raising voice in support of the
social activist, she said "Anna himself did not wanted
political parties with him, therefore we backed out..."

The BJP MP said the party, however, would support Anna
Hazare in the national interest.
