Attacking Rahul Gandhi for his push to anti-corruption bills recently, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said he was a “late entrant” in the anti-graft bandwagon and his effort was “not genuine” as he never spoke earlier on the issue even when several scams took place during the UPA rule.

A day after the extended Winter session of Parliament ended, BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley told a joint press conference here that the pendency of some anti-corruption bills was due to Congress’ failure and not because of the the Opposition.

Swaraj, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, said normal functioning of Parliament was scuttled by Congress members but the ruling party had no control on them.

On Rahul Gandhi’s push to the anti-corruption bills recently and his attack on the Opposition, Jaitley, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said, “He is a late entrant in the anti-corruption bandwagon. He never spoke on corruption in the last 10 years. But now he says corruption is our (Congress’) issue.”

Swaraj added that Rahul was “not even genuine” in his efforts.

She said there were several scams during the UPA government but the Congress Vice President never spoke on it.

“Sau chuhe kha ke billi haj ko chali (after eating 100 rats, a cat goes to pilgrimage),” she said while taking a dig at Rahul.

Jaitley questioned why Rahul remained silent when scams related to 2G spectrum, coal block allocation, Commonwealth Games, Adarsh Housing Society and VVIP chopper deal took place.

    The deaths of Rajiv and Indira did not matter, only the crimes against Satish Chandra matter. Both partited in the CIA’s crimes against me and both were killed by CIA-RAW because of my influence on them. I was the target in killing them; they themselves did not matter. Nehru was a lifelong British agent, Indira and Rajiv worked for the CIA and so do all Indian politicians. Narendra Modi should be whipped and hanged for giving a bouquet of roses to an American diplomat in exchange for a strip search and cavity search of an Indian diplomat. P. Chidambaram should be whipped and hanged for speaking positively about Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist and greatest Indian of all time was publicly tortured for being an Indian. The Italian woman and son should be whipped and hanged for partiting in crimes against him with the help of the CIA’s 24-hour satellite surveillance of him for the past 37 years. Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee should be whipped and hanged for ociating with CIA-RAW agent Hazare, a follower of M. K. hi who was a lifelong British agent and a homoual who wrote to his white master “How completely you have taken possession of my body; it is slavery with a vengeance”. You do not shake hands with any representative of a country whose potion will be made to eat one another till no one remains alive. IndiasLegitimateRulerSatishChandraDOTblogspotDOTcom
