After Cong, AAP criticised Modi for inducting 'corrupts' in cabinet
Monday November 10, 2014 10:11 PM, & Agencies

The Aam Aadmi Party Monday questioned the appointment of J.P. Nadda and Giriraj Singh to the union council of ministers.

Addressing a press conference at the party's Kaushambi office in Ghaziabad, AAP's chief spokesperson Yogendra Yadav said the induction of Nadda as union health minister raised serious questions whether the BJP is serious about tackling corruption.

Nadda is the same man on whose recommendation the chief vigilance officer of AIIMS, Sanjiv Chaturvedi, was removed unceremoniously, Yadav said.

Chaturvedi was removed from his post by the then health minister Harsh Vardhan allegedly at the behest of Nadda.

"The same man has been made health minister. How can this country expect the survival of honest officers in the health department," said Yadav.

Giriraj Singh, appointed minister of state, was "exposed in the past" when a theft of a huge amount of cash from his house was reported, Yadav added.

Earlier in the day, the Congress party had also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the rationale behind the Cabinet expansion and asked for the resignation of "corrupt" ministers.

"There is no thinking or rationale behind Modi-ji's Cabinet expansion. Modi-ji, have you removed the health and railway minister because they were corrupt, or they were incompetent and performed poorly?

"If you have removed the ministers because their assets have increased then in your cabinet there are two more ministers whose asset have increased in the past three months,so what about them," Congress spokesperson Ajay Maken said at a press conference here.

"You have not answered many of the questions. We hope that your corrupt and tainted minister will submit their resignations soon and you will apologise to the nation," added Maken.
