New Delhi, Sept 26: The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Tuesday termed as “hypocrisy” Prime Minister rendra Modi’s stand of “no compromise or leniency on corruption” and demanded to know why the government had not moved ahead on Lokpal or probed scams like Vyapam and the Sahara-Birla diaries.

Modi had on Tuesday reiterated at the BJP’s tiol Executive that there would be no compromise or leniency on corruption.

“The hypocrisy of the Prime Minister and the BJP government lies in the fact that while they are pursuing corruption cases against leaders of the opposition, this government in these three years has not even implemented the law ected by the Parliament to establish the Lokpal,” the CPI-M said in a statement on Wednesday.

“There is no step being taken by this government to investigate scams like Vyapam, Srijan housing scam in Bihar, the Birla-Sahara diaries, the Pama papers, the Lalit Modi case, the mining scandal in Kartaka that led to the resigtion of BJP Chief Minister in the state, land grab case by BJP leaders in Maharashtra and Uttarakhand, PDS scam in Chhattisgarh and the Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation (GSPC) scam etc,” it added.
