BJP is ‘double-faced’ on combating graft: Sonia

Taking on the BJP on the issue of combating corruption, Congress president Sonia Gandhi said that while UPA had always acted promptly against those facing graft charges, what action had the party taken against Madhya Pradesh ministers facing Lokayukta probe.

Addressing a rally here, Gandhi said that whenever cases of corruption came to notice, the UPA immediately took legal action and people had to demit office.

‘I want to ask the BJP leaders and you too ask them, many of their ministers face corruption cases in the Lokayukta and crores of rupees have been found from their leaders but was any action taken against them,’ Gandhi said.

Quoting an idiom - ‘Hathi ke daant, khane ke aur, dikhane ke aur’ Gandhi said, there is a unfathomable difference between what the BJP practised and what it preached.

She accused the BJP of being ‘double-faced’ on the issue of fighting corruption.

‘Even if they keep patting themselves on the back, but you should ask them why is the present situation of Madhya Pradesh such. Why are kids malnourished. Why are farmers being driven to suicide? Do you get fertilisers and seeds on time? For this you will have to go to shops of BJP leaders,’ Gandhi said.
