The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday claimed that books written by former bureaucrats have proved BJP’s allegations that Dr Manmohan Singh was the weakest Prime Minister of the country.
BJP National Spokesperson Prakash Javedkar said, “CP Parekh’s book ‘Crusader or Conspirator?’ and Sanjay Baru’s book ‘Accidental PM’ have unraveled the fact that Dr Manmohan Singh is used as a robot with the 10 Janpath having its remote control. The coal blocks allocation was done based on slips issued by the 10 Janpath. That was the reason why the Prime Minister is unable to stop leaders like Dasari Narayana Rao and Shibu Soren in the coal scam.
I demand AICC President Sonia Gandhi should speak out her stand on the issue. She must explain as to why the Prime Minister was not given freedom to work on his own. Congress party brought disrepute to the institution of Prime Minister of world’s largest democracy. I dismiss Congress party’s allegations that both the books were sponsored by BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.”
The BJP leader also alleged that the CBI did not conduct an in-depth enquiry into the scam. He accused the Congress of making Planning Commission, Comptroller and Auditor General of India and Public Accounts Committee non-effective organisations.
Speaking with reference to birth anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar on Monday, Javedkar said that the Congress party once defeated Dr Ambedkar in an election.
