Pawar is super Kalmadi, says BJP

28 April 2011

NAGPUR: Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) national spokesperson Tarun Vijay launched a scathing attack on NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, whom he described as the most corrupt person in the country.

"Pawar is 'super Kalmadi'. There is no scam in this country in which he is not involved. Still UPA is not initiating any action against him. The people of the country want to know the reason behind this," Vijay told the media on Wednesday.

Vijay slammed the Congress for targetting anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare, "Congress leaders are behaving like villains. Instead of curbing corruption they are, though unsuccessfully, trying to defame a man who is trying to fight out corrupt practices."

On protests by opposition parties that not a single opposition member had been included in the committee, Vijay said, "We have full faith in Anna Hazare and we leave it to him. We will support the bill in Parliament."

When asked about Mayawati's objection to Lokpal Bill committee on the grounds that no Dalit had been included in it, Vijay said that she should first answer the queries regarding corruption in Uttar Pradesh mentioned in a booklet by BJP.

On Shanti Bhushan controversy, the BJP leader said that the CD had proved to be tampered as per the latest report of Delhi Police. He however, parried questions on the Noida land controversy.

The former journalist charged that Congress was not all serious about bringing back black money to India. "I recently met Christa Warder, the parliamentary chairman of Switzerland. She had told me that her country was ready to provide names of all Indians who have Swiss bank accounts. There are 1,36,000 such individuals. If Julian Assange can do it why not Indian investigative agencies," he asked.

German government had successfully got back the black money kept by its citizens in Swiss banks a few months ago, he pointed out.

On progress in 2G scam probe and arrest of high profile persons by CBI, the BJP leader said that it was done under pressure from the media and BJP. "The government is not all honest and is trying to fool us. It is trying its best to protect big fishes like DMK supremo Karunanidhi."
