Singh still protecting colleagues, says BJP

“As soon as the Lokayukta report came, Yeddyurappa had to resign. It was the decision of our parliamentary board,” former party president Rajnath Singh was quoted as saying by a news channel.

Targeting the Congress he said: “The issue is that corruption should not be protected at any cost as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did.

“There are allegations of corruption against P Chidambaram and his senior colleague Pranab Mukherjee sends an official memorandum to the PMO...despite that he (prime minister) says whatever happens, I will protect my colleague...this increases corruption,” he added.

“BJP will never do so. If there are corruption allegations against our biggest leaders, we will not take a moment to relieve him from his duties,” he said.

The party’s national spokesman travelling with senior leader L K Advani on his Jan Chetna Yatra said as against Yeddyurappa’s resignation after the state Lokayukta’s report, no action was taken against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on the basis of the Shunglu Committee and CAG reports.

He said Delhi Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan was bailed out by the Home Ministry despite an adverse report by the state Lokayukta.
