Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday attacked the Congress over its “silence on corruption” in the Adarsh housing society scam and wondered why the resignation of Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan had not been accepted.

“Everyone knows a probe is on. But, the chief minister’s (Ashok Chavan) resignation has not been accepted by the party. The party is silent on corruption. Has it become neutral towards corruption,” BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman told reporters here.

She also termed the government’s linking the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with terror as a “diversionary tactics”.

The BJP has already asked for immediate sacking of Ashok Chavan over the Adarsh Housing Society, built on land earmarked for the families of Kargil martyrs, and the allotment of the plush flats to civilians, including his own relatives.

The party has also demanded an inquiry into the scam by a Supreme Court judge.
