The Congress party has created a fracas and disrupted the functioning of the parliament over their demand for the resignation of CMs in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, the BJP has turned the tables on the opposition party by releasing a CD of a “sting operation” that purpotedly shows the secretary of the Congress CM in Uttarakhand Harish Rawat negotiating and taking bribe from middlemen allegedly linked to private liquor distributors.

Releasing the video at the party headquarters, Union Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said,

The excise policy of Uttarakhand under Vijay Bhauguna was to have the wholesale distribution of foreign liquor (FL-2) through Garwhal Mandal Vikas Nigam and Agriculture Marketing Council. These two then distribute to the smaller retailers and the third layer was the retail outlet.

Union Minister Sitharaman said that the Congress had already replaced Bhauguna with Harish Rawat due to the formers poor response during the Uttarakhand floods, among the first thing the new CM did was to change the liquor policy of the state.

Instead of focusing on providing relief to Uttarakhand (after the floods in 2013) for which he was sent to replace Vijay Bahuguna, Rawat is focusing on making money by tweaking the liquor policy. We demand that the Congress party remove him instantly. He must resign,” Sitharaman said.

Putting further allegations on the Congress and raising the stakes, Union Minister Sitharaman also accused all Congress CMs of being “merchants of loot” and said that her party wanted to know whether Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi obtained “commission” from them.

They have been given a license to loot. BJP wants to know how much commission from this loot is given to Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. The loot by these chief ministers has grown under their patronage,

The BJP has imbibed the stategy of ‘The best defense is offense’ and have gone on an all-out offensive. At the BJP Parliamentary party meeting in Delhi, two booklets were distributed ‘Vyapam – Myths’ and ‘Reality and Scams in the Congress-ruled states’ One of the booklets contain a list of scams and the allegations against the chief ministers of Kerala, Assam, Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh as well as a note on the law and order issues in West Bengal. Prime Minister Modi has urged the MPs to read it carefully and be present in the house ready with facts as ammunition to counter the opposition. The BJP leadership is moving ahead with conviction to back its leaders in controversies.
