Bengaluru: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday asked the Congress Party to produce evidence to substantiate their allegations against Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju for his alleged involvement in an Arunachal Pradesh hydro project scam.
BJP leader S Prakash said the Congress Party is habituated of making illogical allegations against the government, reports ANI.
“Kiren Rijiju has already said that this project was cleared by the Congress government, If they have any evidence or audio clippings which can establish any wrong doing in the project let them project it to the investigation officer. This allegation cannot be accepted and it has become a habit. Under the Modi government, there has not been any minister who would have proved corrupt till date”, Prakash told ANI.
Prakash added, “I have also watched the clippings, He has only forwarded a letter return by the contractor to request to the early release of payment. I am unable to understand as how it is a corruption case. Let the Congress to come out with credible evidence, otherwise it is a futile smear campaign”.
Earlier On Tuesday Rijiju said “Congress people should apologise for this. The scam – awarding of contract and payments – all happened during the Congress’ reign, and thus, the Congress should apologise to the nation”.
