Congress would raise various corruption issues including those of Union Ministers besides the Lalit Modi controversy and Vypam scam in the Monsoon session of Parliament, Congress leader and former Union minister P Chidambaram said here today.
Addressing a series of party meetings in the district, he alleged that Lalit Modi had committed crime against the nation and it was wrong for External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to “help” him.
He accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of keeping quiet on major issues rocking the nation and speaking only about other matters.
Congress will raise these issues in the Monsoon session of Parliament, beginning on July 21, he said.
On the Vyapam scam, he said “so far 47 people died under suspicious circumstances as they tried to expose the scam. Important persons, including the dean of a medical college died.”
Though a CBI probe had been ordered in the scam, “it was anybody’s guess as to what will happen”, he said.
“People feel that the BJP government is anti-people and it belongs to the capitalists, fraudsters and gamblers in the stock market,” he alleged.
