This government most corrupt since independence: BJP

New Delhi, April 30 (IANS) The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government was the most corrupt since independence, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said Tuesday while stressing that the opposition was not responsible for parliament not transacting any business.

“I want to tell the nation, parliament has failed to transact any business not because the opposition is irresponsible but because the current government is the most corrupt one since independence,” Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj said in the lower house when the Finance Bill was taken up for voting.

She said the government had accused the opposition of being irresponsible and the prime minister had said the repeated disruptions had made a laughing stock of the country internationally but parliament was not adjourned repeatedly due to the opposition.

“Not only do they (the government) indulge in scams but also try to cover up (for) the prime minister and other ministers involved,” she said.

Parliament has remained paralysed since April 22, when it met for the second half of the budget session after a month-long recess.

The BJP had Monday said it would allow the Finance Bill 2013-14 to be passed in the Lok Sabha Tuesday as it did not want a “constitutional crisis”.
