BJP CALLS CASH TRANS­FER VOTE-CATCHER

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - FRONT PAGE -

NEW DELHI: The BJP will ap­proach the EC al­leg­ing that the Cen­tre’s an­nounce­ment on cash trans­fer of sub­si­dies at a time when Gu­jarat was go­ing to the polls con­sti­tuted a “cor­rupt” elec­toral prac­tice. Call­ing the move a po­ten­tial vote-catcher, the BJP ques­tioned the tim­ing of its im­ple­men­ta­tion while sup­port­ing the move it­self. BJP spokesper­son Ravi Shankar Prasad asked why Rahul Gandhi was be­ing made to mon­i­tor the scheme, as he was not hold­ing any con­sti­tu­tional of­fice.
