Maya cannot escape charges of involvement in NRHM scam: Rajnath

KANPUR: Former chief minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh said
that Mayawati cannot escape the charges of being involved in National
Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam. "How is it possible that a scam of
Rs 5,000 crore takes place in the state and Mayawati does not come to
know about it? It is not a scam of Rs 5-10 crore wherein only a
minister is involved. It is a scam of thousands of crores and
Mayawatiji cannot escape the charges of being involved in it by
expelling ministers right before the Assembly elections," Singh while
addressing an election rally at Express Road in support of BJP
candidate Salil Vishnoi, contesting from Arya Nagar seat.
Singh questioned the people that will they like to vote such a party
(BSP) into power where corruption is at its peak or vote Samajwadi
Party to power which is know for giving shelter to goons and
criminals. "Think first and then use your right to franchise," he
Lambasting BSP for being involved into corruption, Singh said, "I do
not remember when any police official spoke openly in the media
against a chief minister but this has happened in Mayawati's regime,
where a DIG levelled charges of corruption against Behenji. Imagine
the height of corruption."
" Kalyan Singh, Ramprakash Gupta and even I as a chief minister had no
such instance during our regimes where a police official levelled
corruption charges against us but what all happened in Mayawati's
regime. Before being voted into power, she had said that she would
send Maulayam Singh and Amar Singh to jail as they were involved into
corruption but nothing of this sort happened," he said.
Speaking about nexus between Congress, SP and BSP, Singh said that
while SP and BSP continue to support Congress in Centre, the Congress
lashes out at the two parties in the state. "Rahul should ask Manmohan
Singh to give back the support taken from both SP and BSP to run his
government in the Centre and then speak against these parties here in
the state. Therefore, I question him (Rahul), why should people of the
state trust your words of developing Uttar Pradesh," he added.
The senior BJP leader also questioned Sonia Gandhi that why she never
speaks about inflation in the election rallies.
Singh counted the scams in which the ministers of Congress party were
involved. He said that 2G scam tops the chart. The 2G scam has exposed
the Congress party.
Commenting on Salman Khursheed's statement, Singh said that it is not
difficult to understand why the Congress party is speaking about Batla
House encounter during elections. Right before the elections, Congress
spoke about reservation to Muslims. He said that it just one way to
woo Muslim voters and added that his party is not against reservation
but it should be given on the basis of social status of a person or a
community. He said that BJP is against the caste-based reservation as
this would lead to division of the country into parts.
Speaking about the increasing popularity of BJP in the state, Singh
said that his party can give good governance.
"SP supremo said in an election recently that if BJP becomes the
single largest party in the state, his party would support Congress.
This shows that fear of our win has disturbed our rivals," he said.
