New Delhi, May 1 (IANS) After stalling parliament, the main opposition BJP has decided to hold nationwide protests May 4 and 5 to “expose” the scams of the UPA government.
“These protests will unmask the misuse of constitutional institutions to cover up scams, corruption and sins of the Congress,” BJP vice president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told reporters here.
“BJP leaders including L.K. Advani, party chief Rajnath Singh, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj, her Rajya Sabha counterpart Arun Jaitley and all BJP chief ministers will lead protests across the country,” Naqvi said.
“The prime minister has become the guardian of sins and the Congress a caucus of corruption. Every corruption, scam and loot of public money is being done under the guardianship of the prime minister by the Congress with impunity,” he said.
The BJP has been stalling both houses of parliament since the beginning of the second half of the budget session, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Law Minister Ashwani Kumar.
