Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister M.Venkaiah Naidu on Friday said that there were no allegations of corruption against any ministers in the BJP Government, adding that the Centre has remained free of scams and scandals.
“There is no crisis at all. The government is functioning effectively. The government is focusing its attention on development and good governance. There is no allegation of any corruption against any ministers in Modi ji’s government. The government is doing an excellent job. There are no scams and no scandals,” Naidu said.
“Some people want to play politics in each and everything. Let them play politics. We are more concerned about the welfare of the people. As far as we are concerned, we have not done anything wrong,” he added.
The BJP, which has been defending External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj despite opposition demands that she be sacked for helping Lalit Modi, was hit with another worry last week when the former IPL boss claimed that Raje secretly supported his immigration plea in Britain.
The opposition mounted pressure on Raje after the emergence of a letter reportedly carrying her signature, in which she backs Lalit Modi’s application in the UK.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra Women and Child Welfare Minister Pankaja Munde is at the centre of a Rs 206 crore scale, while a Delhi court agreed to hear a complaint against Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani over her educational qualifications.
