Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, June 30 (IANS) The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Thursday termed as “unsatisfactory, highly elusive and also deeply deplorable” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s remarks on corruption during his meeting with newspaper editors.

Talking to reporters in New Delhi, BJP general secretary and chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad called the Manmohan Singh government the most corrupt since independence.

“The people of the country have every bonafide reason to infer that the government headed by Dr. Manmohan Singh is the most corrupt government since independence,” Prasad said.

He said the entire country is very distressed and angry over a series of massive corruptions of the UPA government and wants answers and action.

“The prime minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, was in silent mode for a long time and when he has spoken, instead of openly acknowledging it and assuring the country about effective action, has said that instances of corruption were just aberrations,” Prasad said.

“Corruption is not an aberration but the most defining and yet deplorable feature of this government. There was no state of uncertainty but public money was systematically looted because of conspiracy of silence,” he added.

The prime minister made his comments in an interaction with newspaper editors Wednesday.
