Why is PM shying away from independent probe: Dikshit
Toeing the party line, Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi wondering why he was shying away from an independent probe into the ‘Sahara-Birla’ papers relating to alleged pay-offs, days after her comments questioning authenticity of the documents put Congress on the backfoot.
The Congress’ CM candidate in Uttar Pradesh also debunked speculation that she was distancing herself from the campaigning in the poll-bound state in the wake of the controversy.
“Why is @PMOIndia shying from an independent and a thorough probe into the #BirlaSaharaPapers?,” Dikshit tweeted.
“I have said what I had to. The ball is in the court of the @PMOIndia & others now. Will he respond and come out clean? #SaharaBirlaDiaries (sic),” Dikshit said in another tweet.
Meanwhile, Congress’ Delhi unit on Tuesday launched a campaign against the Prime Minister and sought answers to the charges of “corruption” against him. Workers of 280 booth-level committees of Congress held campaigns at public places including Metro stations, flyovers and markets on the first day of two-day campaign.
