Condemning the remarks made by Congress leaders during a party briefing yesterday, the BJP accused Congress of threatening investigation agencies. BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain slammed the Congress for making remarks like “governments keep changing” following the raids conducted by the Enforcement Directorate at the offices of Robert Vadra and his close associates.
Hussain said that Prime Minister Modi has fulfilled his promise made to the people by acting strongly against corruption. “The Congress and its leaders are heaping abuses on investigation agencies and threatening them. These agencies are acting against corruption. Congress leaders say season is changing but they should know that the country is changing. Action would be taken against those involved in corruption,” he said.
Attacking Congress, he said that it is typical of Congress to indulge in corruption, deny it later and then resort to abusing when action is taken. He claimed that BJP will again form governments in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh while Congress will never return to power.
Hussain told the reporters that the Modi government has given a free hand to the investigation agencies to take action against people involved in corruption irrespective of their party and family affiliations. On the question regarding the growing demand from the Hindu community for the construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya, Hussain said that his party believed that there should be no delay in this. He said that the government respects the public sentiment and believes that the temple should be built at the earliest.
Yesterday, the Congress leaders had accused the Modi government of misusing the government agencies for settling political scores. Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi had warned the bureaucrats that governments keep changing. The party briefing was held following the ED raid at the offices of Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of former Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
