BJP attacks PM, says he is leading "insensitive" govt
Saturday, October 27, 2012
BJP today launched a frontal attack on Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh, charging that he is heading the "most
corrupt and insensitive" government of the country.
Addressing election rallies at Palampur and Pachhad,
Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj accused
the prime minister of shifting the blame for scams on
However, he cannot escape responsibility being the head
of the cabinet, she said.
"The Prime Minister is surrounded by corrupt people but
as head of the cabinet he cannot escape responsibility
and is accountable to the people," she said.
"I have asked this question directly from the prime
minister in Parliament but he did not respond but as
Prime Minister he cannot shift blame and has to be
morally accountable," she added.
Charging that the UPA government was involved in scams on
the earth, beneath the earth and in the sky, she said,
"Like a good sportsperson, Congress is breaking its own
record of corruption and after 1.76 lakh crore 2G scam
another 1.86 lakh crore coalgate scam has surfaced".
Lashing out at the government for rising prices, the BJP
leader said the UPA government was not only corrupt but
"totally insensitive" to the plight of the common man
reeling under rising prices and the decision to cap the
number of subsidised LPG cylinders to six would put
further burden on common people.
