UPA allies restless:Rudy
Patna: UPA allies would no longer carry "the burden of a corruption-ridden" Congress and the government at the Centre was likely to crumble "like a pack of cards", BJP national spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy said today.
"There is growing uneasiness and restlessness among UPA allies like DMK, TMC and NCP and others. They are afraid of carrying the burden of the corruption-ridden Congress and its government at the Centre is likely to crumble like a pack of cards," Rudy told reporters here. "Anti-Congress sentiments have cropped up among the people because of corruption, water treaty, land granting treaty and terrorism and the atmosphere is completely against the Congress government," Rudy claimed.
Describing the Congress as "a sinking ship", Rudy said, "UPA allies don`t appear to be in a mood to go ahead with this sinking ship." He claimed that the credibility of the Congress-led government had gradually eroded and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh "who has virtually lost control over his cabinet colleagues" should put in his papers.
He said now that the official notes pertaining to the go ahead to former telecom minister A Raja for allocation of the spectrum have surfaced, the Prime Minister should own moral responsibility and resign. Raja, he said, had admitted in court that the 2G spectrum deal was done with the full consent of former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and the Prime Minister.
