Dehradun, Feb 22 (PTI) The ruling BJP today criticisedCongress for launching satyagrah against the state government,saying the move was done to divert the public attention fromthe scams at the Centre.
"The Congress-led UPA government is involved inseveral scams and scandals of Rs 400 lakh crore and the peopleare reeling under soaring price rise. So the ongoing agitationis just an attempt to divert the public attention from theseissues," Uttarakhand BJP general Secretary Suresh Joshi toldreporters here.
Congress has yesterday launched a state-wide satyagrahagitation from Nainital alleging that the state government isindulging in corruption and has failed on all fronts.
