New Delhi : BJP leader L.K. Advani Sunday gave a call for ousting the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government on the issue of corruption, saying a situation had arisen for a change of regime.
Speaking at the Ramlila ground at the conclusion of his 40-day Jan Chetna Yatra, Advani said the “fog of corruption” needs to be banished.
“The fog hanging over politics due to corruption of government will not vanish automatically.
“It will go due to public awareness, pressure of people, and if not, then by change of regime and that situation has arisen. In a large measure, it has happened due to the government and in a large measure due to hard work done by BJP,” Advani said.
Advani accused the government of failing to check the price rise and said support at the rally was “unprecedented.”
Advani likened the fog he encountered in the morning while proceeding from Ghaziabad, where he addressed a rally Saturday night, to the “fog of corruption”. He said there was thick fog when he began his journey from Ghaziabad, but the fog vanished as the day progressed “but the fog of corruption will not go automatically”.
