'Rahul late entrant on anti-graft bandwagon'

Questioning his silence on scams in the UPA regime, the BJP on Saturday attacked Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for demanding the passage anti-graft bills, describing him as a “late entrant” on the “anti-corruption crusader bandwagon”. 

The Centre could not bring a string of anti-corruption bills—which Rahul Gandhi wished—in the last session of Parliament that ended on Friday owing to lack of support from other parties.

Subsequently, the government said it was also looking at the option of bringing ordinances to give birth to the Public Procurement Bill, Timely Delivery of Electronic Services and Goods, Citizens Charter Bill, a bill dealing with bribery of foreign officials, and the Prevention of Corruption Act (Amendment) Bill.

Parliament, however, passed the Whistleblowers Protection Bill on Friday due to the push it received from the BJP.
