Vadra foun­tain­head of cor­rup­tion: BJP

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

The BJP on Satur­day slammed Congress for its crit­i­cism of the ED raids against as­so­ci­ates of Robert Vadra, call­ing the brother-in-law of Rahul Gandhi as “foun­tain­head of cor­rup­tion”. BJP spokesper­son Sam­bit Pa­tra said Congress used to call Vadra a pri­vate ci­ti­zen af­ter his name cropped up in cor­rup­tion cases but now the whole party stands be­hind him. BJP de­fended raids by the in­ves­ti­ga­tion agency, claim­ing that in­de­pen­dent in­sti­tu­tions are work­ing in tan­dem with the Con­sti­tu­tion un­der the Modi gov­ern­ment and “law is tak­ing its own course”. “Congress feels cor­rup­tion was its birthright. Un­der the Modi gov­ern­ment, those who are cor­rupt are be­ing in­ves­ti­gated and this has sent a sense of in­se­cu­rity in the Congress quar­ters,” he said.
