UPA govt should not gag people's voices: SK Modi



Patna: The Congress-led UPA government should refrain from silencing people's voices against corruption and black money stashed away abroad, according to Bihar Deputy Chief Minister SK Modi.

"The Centre should act against corruption and black money stashed away abroad and refrain from gagging people's voices against corruption and black money which have emerged as major issue now," Modi told reporters, apparently referring to the agitation launched by Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev.

"The Centre should also not harbour the illusion that the fast Ramdev broke is a victory," he said.

"The Congress wants to divert people's attention from corruption by linking those fighting against corruption to RSS and BJP and it has also stopped to such a low that it is trying to inflict insult by ordering probe into the property of those raising their heads against the government for its failure to tackle corruption and bring black money stashed away abroad back to India," he alleged.

"After Ramdev, the Congress leaders are training their guns against Hazare to sully his image... it is unfortunate," he said.
