The priorities of the government as listed is a list of thegovernment''s failure on all these counts", party NationalSecretary D Raja alleged here.
Maintaining that the government was caught in "aquagmire of corruption and scams", he said the rulingcoalition is in "deep trouble".
"The government wants to frontally fight corruptionand lack of probity, when it has itself been frontallyexposed. How can it fight corruption when it is searching fora fig leaf?" Raja asked.
