UPA maintains double standards: Gadgari

gadgariNew Delhi: The BJP attacked the UPA and stated that it was suffering from a crisis of credibility and wondered why “different yardsticks” were being applied for former Telecom Minister A Raja and Home Minister P Chidambaram in the 2G case.

“The government today suffers from the crisis of credibility. Its domestic credibility stands tattered while its international credibility has suffered a serious dent. Corruption has broken all records,” party president Nitin Gadkari said while addressing the BJP national executive meeting,

“…If the Prime Minister is so indifferent to the problems and crisis faced by the government, then why is he in office? He always has a hallmark reply that he did not know anything,” BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad told reporters quoting Mr. Gadkari.

“In spite of voluminous evidence proving the culpability and complicity of Chidambaram in the case, different yardsticks are being followed. The CBI is not being allowed to probe this,” Mr. Gadkari said on the 2G spectrum issue.

The BJP chief said if there was evidence against the Prime Minister in the 2G scam, then he should also be investigated.
