In Sonia’s defence, Maya and Mulayam stand united

In Sonia’s defence, Maya and Mulayam stand united
With the BJP taking on Robert Vadra in Parliament over his alleged dubious land deals, UPA’s outside supporters - BSP and SP - struck a cautious note wondering how Congress president Sonia Gandhi could be held responsible for the alleged wrongdoings of her son-in-law. The Left parties, however, took the stand that all cases of corruption should be probed.

BSP supreme leader Mayawati said, ‘I would like to say if Sonia Gandhi is held responsible for it, our party would not agree with it. If someone does something wrong, his or her relations should not be punished. How can Sonia Gandhi be held responsible.’ She was commenting on the Vadra issue over which both Houses of Parliament saw repeated adjournments with the BJP turning aggressive.

SP leader Naresh Aggarwal said the BJP was ‘politicising’ the issue which was a state matter and should be handled at that level only. ‘I don’t agree with the BJP’s slogan of ‘sarkari damaad’. We are not in agreement with the politicisation of the issue and dragging Sonia Gandhi into the issue. I do not see how she can be held responsible,’ said Aggarwal.

Asked about the Left stand on the issue at a press conference jointly addressed by CPI (M) and CPI leaders, Gurudas Dasgupta (CPI) said: ‘It is not just the question of the son-in-law. There are many more people who have foreign accounts. More information will come out in near future. All non-issues are being raised and the House is getting disrupted. Why major parties do not raise the issue of Reliance?’

CPI (M) leader Sitaram Yechury said all cases of corruption, whether any individual or any corporate is involved, must be probed and the guilty punished. These issues must also be discussed in the House.
