CAG report indicts Modi government; Congress trains its guns at BJP

Friday March 30, 2012 08:03:50 PM, IANS

New Delhi: With a Comptroller and Auditor General of India report alleging financial irregularities worth thousands of crores of rupees by the Narendra Modi government in Gujarat, the Congress Friday trained its guns at the Bharatiya Janata Party and said "loot in state feeds the party's central leadership".

"The BJP tolerates Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as he feeds the party's central leadership by indulging in corruption," leader of the opposition in Gujarat assembly Shakti Sinh Gohil told reporters here.

Quoting the CAG report tabled in the house Friday after the opposition was shunted out of the assembly, Gohil said financial misappropriation by the state government runs into Rs.43,000 crore.

Gohil said while he was suspended by the state government from the house on the first day of the budget session, his colleagues were also suspended by the administration later on.

The CAG report he said was tabled in the absence of any opposition as the Congress had wanted a discussion on it.

Listing the finding of the CAG report, Gohil said the state government spent Rs.5,000 crore on the Krishna Godavari basin against the expert advice, supplied gas at below purchase price to Adani group and committed irregularities in purchase of pulses.

"It is a loot of the treasury," said Gohil adding that the state Congress would take the issue of uninterrupted corruption during the Modi rule in the past decade among the masses.

Gujarat assembly polls are slated for November 2012.

AICC general secretary in charge of the state Mohan Prakash asked the BJP why it disrupts parliament over a CAG report but is silent on another one which indicts its own government in Gujarat.
