Shillong, April 25: AICC general secretary in-charge Meghalaya V rayasamy today asked BJP president Amit Shah to clean up corruption in states ruled by his party rather than urging his workers to unearth corruption in Meghalaya.
“I strongly condemn his statement. I advise him to see the BJP ruled states where corruption is there and clean the system in those states,” rayasamy told reporters today.
The AICC general secretary in-charge Meghalaya said that he felt sorry for Shah and pointed out that in Chattisgarh, there is a rice procurement scam wherein there is clear allegation against the Chief Minister on which the BJP president has not taken any action.
According to rayasamy, in Madhya Pradesh, there is a big recruitment scam wherein even ministers are involved but the party has not taken any action.
“No need to say about the rampant corruption in which Rajasthan Government is involved. Without looking its face on the mirror, the BJP is trying to put the accusing fingers on the Congress ruled States,” he said.
“The party is very clear that they will not tolerate corruption. The wild allegation by the BJP against the Congress government in Meghalaya is unfortute and is ucceptable,” rayasamy added.
During his recent visit to the state, the BJP president while addressing party workers urged them to compile list of corruptions of the Congress led MUA II coalition government in Meghalaya in the form of a ‘booklet’ and distribute it to the people in the state to expose the corruptions indulged in by the Congress.
Meanwhile, rayasamy also said that rendra Modi government is crippling the religious freedom of the people of the region.
The AICC general secretary pointed out that the ban on cow slaughter is another attack on the religious sentiments of the people.
According to him the banning of beef actually shows the paradoxical mind of the BJP in the country.
“For eyewash, they say that they will not bring the banning of beef in Meghalaya but why they have done it in Maharashtra? Even in Maharashtra, there are minority and Christian people living,” rayasamy asked. Meanwhile, the Coordition Committee overseeing the implementation of the Congress manifesto has asked the government to have a time line to fulfill the assurances given to the people before the election.
According to rayasamy,the government’s performance on the manifesto in agriculture health, education, social welfare, anti-poverty programme and other infrastructure development has been briefed by the government.
“After having the review on the performance of the manifesto, I was quite happy with the achievement of the Congress led Government in the State,” he said.
