New Delhi, July 20: The Congress on Monday accused the rendra Modi government of “doing nothing” on issues it held dear, including corruption, while a year has passed since the BJP-led alliance took office at the Centre. Before he took over as prime minister, rendra Modi would say that parliament would be rid of corrupt people, even if they belonged to the NDA or his own party, the BJP, former minister Kapil Sibal told a press conference here on the eve of beginning of monsoon session of parliament.

“He would say he was a ‘chowkidar’ (watchman) of the tion’s wealth and would not allow the corrupt to steal it. But now he has become the ‘chowkidar’ of the corrupt,” the Congress leader said. Sibal also criticised the central government for not giving due importance to African and West Asian countries in its foreign policy. “They (Indian government) have not attended even a single conference of African tions,” he said, adding that it was just busy with the US and other big western countries. Nothing is being done for the countries in West Asia and Africa, he added. (IANS)
