Moily flays BJP for slamming Centre's Advisory to Karna govt

"The Centre acted in a responsible manner, despite BJP being engaged in a malicious campaign against Congress to gain sympathy from the people after Governor H R Bhardwaj sent in his report to the Centre. But BJP's attempts failed," he said.

BJP should have taken the Centre's advisory in the right spirit. Allegations of corruption and illegal mining faced by Yeddyurappa government was not created by Congress, Moily told reporters here.

It was the Supreme Court appointed Central Empowered Committee which brought to light the menace of illegal mining going on in Karnataka after which Yeddyurappa government has come under the cloud of corruption charges, he said.

It was on the basis of these allegations the Centre had sent the advisory, he added.
Yeddyurappa had said he has sent the copy of the advisory to BJP President Nitin Gadkari, seeking advice on future steps the state should take on the issue. Yeddyurappa and BJP's top brass have been highly critical of the advisory.

The Centre had sent the Advisory after rejecting the Governor's report recommending imposition of President's rule.Criticising BJP, Moily claimed the party would be decimated in the next General Elections to be held in 2013.

BJP, which was routed in the recent assembly polls held in five states, including Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, would face similar poll prospects in 2013 elections also, he said.
Anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare has not set any deadline over the Jan Lokpal Bill, draft of which would be ready by June 30, Moily told reporters in Mangalore.

The Government will introduce the bill in the coming Parliament session and it was left to Parliament to decide on its passage, he said.

On the accusation made by BJP against the Government in deciding the fate of Afzal Guru, sentenced to death for his role in attack on Parliament in December 2001, Moily said that the party is only making baseless allegations.
