Pot calling the kettle black: BJP on Cong-BSP war of words
PTI | 06:10 PM,Oct 28,2011

New Delhi, Oct 28 (PTI) BJP today took potshots both at the UPA
government at the Centre and the BSP government in Uttar Pradesh for
alleged corruption in use of MNREGA funds saying the "pot was calling
the kettle black". "In Mayawati's regime, it is mayhem as far as the
administration is concerned and it's a bigger mayhem as far as
corruption is concerned but it is the pot calling the kettle black,"
BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said. Rudy was commenting on UP
Chief Minister Mayawati's letter to the Prime Minister in which she
said the allegations by Union Minister Jairam Ramesh of misuse of
MNREGA funds in the state were politically motivated. "The central
government has already been charged with enormous corruption, they are
charging the state government, they are no better," Rudy told
reporters here. "But having said whether it is the Mayawati government
in Uttar Pradesh or for that matter the Congress-led government at
Centre, they are equally responsible and should apportion the blame as
far as corruption is concerned," he added. "The Comptroller and
Auditor General has also said that MNREGA is suspect and there are a
lot of cases and facts have been found where there has been a lot of
misappropriation of MNREGA funds,"Rudy added. "It is a matter of
concern as it it affects the poor people. BJP has expressed its
concern over misuse of MNREGA funds both at the Centre and the
misgovernance and the loot at the state's level as well,"Rudy further
