New Delhi: Alleging that the Congress did not want the Lokpal Bill to be passed in the Rajya Sabha, the BJP today said that it will launch a week-long campaign across the country to expose the ruling party.
BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman told to reporters, “There was no conviction by the UPA in Rajya Sabha for passing a strong Lokpal Bill, and that is why people are disappointed. BJP will launch the ‘Loktantra bachao, Congress hatao’ (save democracy remove Congress) campaign at a district level from January 3-10.”
She said that the party will tell the truth to the people concerning how the Bill was teased and not passed.
The spokesperson said that “If Congress had the will to pass Lokpal, it would have talked to the Trinamool Congress, BJP and other parties. However, Congress does not have the conviction.”
A high-level BJP assignment will also request the President on Jan 3 to register its protest against the Lokpal Bill fiasco in Parliament.
With the encounter in Parliament on Lokpal concern now put to rest till the budget session, the BJP has determined to take to the streets on the concern.
