Varun Gandhi questions BJP's silence on RIL

Expressing his views on his Twitter handle varungandhi80, the Pilibhit MP said "CAG indicts Reliance. Clear violation of govt contract terms. Govt & opposition both silent. Wonder why?!"

Gandhi goes on to share details of where CAG has found the government in the wrong as it favoured Reliance.

"(a) eliminated competition in contracts. (b) Awarded contracts at unreasonable rates. (c) Directly notified oil and gas discoveries without informing government," Gandhi said.
The government has not yet reacted to the CAG report findings.

Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi had spoken on the leaks of the CAG report on KG Basin. He had questioned the leaks and sought to know who was behind it. He had also raised eyebrows about the authenticity of the leaked report.

The CAG report will be sent to Parliament's Public Accounts Committee headed by Joshi.
