Chennai: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan on Sunday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and their prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi were controlled by a mafia which has been created by a generation of corrupt money because of which they were silent about the increase in gas price in the country.
“The generation of corrupt money, which has created a mafia in this county, controls the entire systems of power including the major political parties, and the BJP and Mr. Modi is no exception,” said Bhushan.
“That is why he has not raised his voice against one of the biggest scam that has happened in the history of the country very recently, the gas price scam where the cabinet has taken a decision to increase the gas prices given to reliance from the Godavari gas basin,” he said.
“This would mean the outflow of lakhs of cores, from the pockets of common people and from the public exchequer into the coffers of reliance,” said Bhushan.
“It is strange and surprising that neither a leader in the BJP nor Mr. Modi has spoken a word about it,” he added. (ANI)
