New Delhi : The BJP on Saturday described the ongress Working Committee (CWC) as “corruption wali committee” (committee of corruption) hours after it resolved to take on the government on the issue of graft, reports PTI..

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said every act of corruption in India is linked to the party and it was paddling lies and misleading people against the government.

“The Congress has hard connection with corruption. Wherever corruption happens in India, it goes to 10 Janpath. 10 Janpath is the permanent address of corruption in India and every act of corruption leads to the Gandhi family,” he said.

10 Janpath is the official residence of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

The ruling party also dismissed allegation about irregularities committed by the Modi government in fixing prices of the Rafale fighter jets, saying the Congress is spreading untruth on the issue as it is “frustrated” over the absence of any middlemen in the deal.

“He (Rahul Gandhi) told Parliament that French president said something in his ears. Within hours the French government issued a statement exposing his lies. Can there be anything more humiliating than this. He was criticised the world over and it happened for the first time that another country had to intervene…and issue a letter. But Rahul is carrying on with his lies,” Patra said.

He said the government took a decision on Rafale jets at a time when the squadron strength was vastly depleted and the Congress did nothing between 2002 and 2012 to address this issue.

Taking a dig at the CWC members over allegations of corruption they face, he said it is “corruption wali committee”.
