Uma Bharati challenges to Sonia, Rahul to take action against Mayawati

LUCKNOW: BJP leader Uma Bharati has shot off letters to Congress
president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi challenging
them to take action against UP chief minister and BSP supremo Mayawati
and her brother Anand Kumar for corruption, in order to clear doubts
of a tacit understanding between Congress and BSP.
Bharti has attached with her letter 'evidences' of alleged corruption
by Mayawati and her brother and asked Congress high command to get the
charges probed through a central agency before taking action. Bharati
has written that BJP national secretary Kirit Somaiya had released a
list of ghost companies run by Anand Kumar on December 5.
These companies, she said, are used for converting black money earned
through corruption into white. She said that Congress president and
general secretary are in a position to influence UPA government to get
corruption charges probed through a central investigative agency.
The political move is being seen as BJP leader's attempt to kill three
birds with a stone - discrediting Mayawati through charges of
corruption and asking Congress to take a stand on 'Maya corruption'
issue at a time when UPA government is having tough time on the issues
of black money stashed abroad, price hike, corruption and foreign
direct investment in retail sector.
At the same time, the move will help Bharati establish herself in UP
politics after being given charge of campaigning for 2012 state
assembly polls by BJP national president Nitin Gadkari. Bharati, who
is also former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, has been looking for
political ground after being uprooted in her home state.
Bharati has stated in the letter that people in UP have doubts that
Congress and BSP have tacit understanding, although they attack each
other on the issue of corruption in public. While BSP has been
supporting Congress led UPA government at the Centre, the latter has
taken no action against Mayawati and her family despite CBI's claim
that it has ample evidence against BSP chief.
Also, union ministers have been writing letters alleging corruption in
UP in implementation of MNREGA and NRHM but no action has been taken.
Hence, she said, in order to clear the doubts in the mind of people,
Congress president and general secretary should get the charges of
corruption against Mayawati and her family probed and take action.
She has also challenged the Congress high command to take action
against her and Somaiya if evidences on Mayawati's corruption provided
by them are found to be false and fabricated.
