BJP leader L K Advani today launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, saying as his decade-long tenure draws to a close, he would have presided over the “most corrupt” government in independent India. “Dr Manmohan Singh began his tenure with a clean personal reputation. But as his decade-long tenure is coming to a close, he would leave behind him a record of having presided over the most corrupt government in independent India,” he said in his latest blog.

Attacking the Congress-led UPA government, Advani alleged that it had driven Parliament to an “all-time low”, recounting the February 13 mayhem in Lok Sabha, which saw a Congress MP using pepper spray in the House and ministers joining anti-Telangana protests in the Well.

“Most members were shocked one day to see as many as half-a-dozen ministers… totally disregarding the presence of the PM and Soniaji in the House, rushing into the Well and joining the ugly ruckus… when amidst shouting of slogans for and against division of Andhra Pradesh, parliamentary papers were being torn and thrown all around,” he said, blaming the UPA for coalition mismanagement.

He said, “The limits of unsavoury behaviour were crossed when a Congress party MP pulled out a black pepper spray and started spraying it all around so that several MPs, including Sushma Swaraj, had tears in her eyes and many others were seen coughing in acute discomfort.”

Terming the pepper spray incident as the “lowest point” of UPA-II, Advani drew a parallel with the cash-for-vote scam under UPA-I, saying whistleblowers, including three BJP MPs, were jailed instead of being rewarded for exposing it.

    North Indians in the garb of congress and BJP are burning my state AP.AP is burning not just because of congress. It is because of BJP (TDP's cat on wall atiude) support to congress? How difficult is for you political parties that we do not want the divide? We do not want the divide - more than 80 % of us do not want it. Is that not simple enough information for you politicians and news media and papers. So you divide (Congress) or allow the divide (BJP), or support dividers (TDP alignment with BJP) of our State Andhra Pradesh and want our votes- Congress, BJP and TDP? You pull a dagger through the heart of my state and cut it and kill it (where its over 80% people are hurt for immemorial times in future). And you want our votes . Indian Parliament under the Sonia/Manmohan Congress has been a Moosi Naala.As per Chandra Babu Naidu he wants the divide so that he and his son can rule one state and actor Balakrishna can the other state. You cant expect much from CBN the cat on wall.
