2G: BJP attacks PM-Sonia 'romance' over DMK's wounds

Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi
New Delhi, May 26: The top DMK leaders have already been lodged in Tihar jail over criminal conspiracy and corruption allegation in the 2G spectrum scam. But such a move is yet to impress the main opposition party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The BJP now started criticising Congress' "romancing" in public with DMK.

The opposition party blamed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi as the main culprits of the second generation telecom scam. Sympathising towards DMK, BJP spokesperson Jagat Prakash Nadda said, "Congress is trying to put all the blame for the 2G scam on DMK."

"Congress and DMK are together on the issue of corruption and acted in a pre-planned, well-thought out manner on the 2G scam. Now, in public Congress is romancing with DMK but in private it is conspiring against its ally," chided Nadda.

The BJP spokesperson also hinted that DMK's A Raja and Kanimozhi became the "scapegoats" of the 2G spectrum scam which has been "masterminded" by some other powerful leaders.

Reminding the correspondence between the Prime Minister and and the then telecom minister A Raja, the BJP spokesperson claimed, "It shows that there was an unstated consent of the prime minister on the 2G spectrum licences."

"We have come to know - and the media should also investigate further - that Chidambaram had also insisted then that the government should go ahead with the first-come-first-serve proposal," stated Nadda while hurling his attack on Union Home Minister P Chidambaram.

Nadda also added, "Kapil Sibal set aside all parliamentary procedures and practices by challenging the CAG report. The scams indicate that Congress is fully involved and is the progenitor of all corruption."
