Adarsh files missing a cover up by Congress: BJP

"When the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ashok Chavan resigned over the issue, the files should have been kept carefully. This is a deliberate attempt by Congress to cover up the issue and protect key persons involved in the Adarsh housing scam," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters here.

He said BJP would do everything to "thwart attempts of the Congress to cover up the scam".

"There were key notings in the Adarsh file...how can it go missing? We believe there are bigger names involved in the housing scam and apart from Chavan, other wickets will fall."

He said in wake of the report of the Adarsh file going missing, all files pertaining to CWG, 2G spectrum allocation and the housing society scams should be safely guarded by the authorities concerned.

"Congress has been rejecting the opposition's demand in Parliament for a Joint Parliamentary Probe into the 2G scam and have been trying to convince us that a probe by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) is enough. This is a tactic to divert attention from the real issue," the BJP leader alleged.

The opposition would not rest till the demand for a JPC probe was not met by the UPA government. "Even the media and the Supreme Court have been raising objections similar to those highlighted by the BJP," he said.

Hussain said the ruling party was answerable and accountable to the people of the country over the scams and the opposition's protest would "spill on to the streets till the government comes clean over the issues".
