NDA anti-corruption rally to deadlock UPA & Delhi

Advani and Thackeray
New Delhi, Dec 22: BJP led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will kick start its anti-corruption rally against UPA on Wednesday, Dec 22 at Ram Lila Maidan in Delhi. The new campaign aimed to keep the momentum against UPA, which is dwindled by the continuous corruption scams.

BJP aims to take up the controversial issues, 2G spectrum scam, Rahul Gandhi's terror remarks against saffron parties and Sonia Gandhi's attack on party during the Congress plenary meet, to the streets across the country. Different campaigns were planned along the rally.

BJP also planned to continue its demand for Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) in 2G spectrum scam. The party will raise the demand for JPC in the Parliament after washing out the entire Winter session without any business. BJP has rejected PM Manmohan Singh's offer to appear before Public Accounts Committee (PAC) in connection with the 2G scam.

Meanwhile, some of the NDA allies have told that they won't participate in the rally. BJD chief Naveen Patnaik told his party would not join the BJP-led platform. Also, rumors spread that another key ally, Shiv Sena, may boycott the rally. Shiv Sena is not happy with BJP's move to ally with their rival Raj Thackeray.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray visited BJP office in Mumbai on Tuesday, Dec 21. Following the visit, Shiv Sena leaders openly expressed their protest. Later, NDA chairman L K Advani, Sushma Swaraj and BJP president Nitin Gadkari spoke to Shiv Sena leaders and assured their commitment towards Sena. Anyhow, Shiv Sena's participation in the rally will be low.
