Sonia not taking steps against corruption: Kejriwal

Posted on Nov 09, 04:19PM | IBNS

Social activist Arvind Kejriwal on Friday accused Congress supremo Sonia Gandhi is not taking strong actions against corruption.

"Strong actions should be taken against corruption to improve the nation," Kejriwal told media before making another revelation on Friday.

"Sonia Gandhi is not taking any step to do that," Kejriwal said.

He earlier "exposed" business dealings of Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra who he alleged benefitted from the Haryana government favours and realty firm DLF at the expense of farmers whose lands were acquired by force.

Kejriwal hit out Gandhi on a day when the Congress leadership is meeting at Surajkund in Haryana to chalk out the future path of the criticism-hit party.

Gandhi in her opening remarks stressed on the need for creating stronger coordination between the government and her party.

"There is need for stronger coordination between party and government," she said.

Gandhi said the government took tough decisions and reasons behind taking it should be 'clearly' explained to the people.

"Our government took some tough decisions. It is our job to tell the people of the country very clearly that why such decisions were taken," she said.

With price rise and scams roiling the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), the first family of the Congress sent a message of austerity to the party workers and people by taking a bus, the mode of transportation of the 'aam aadmi', to Surajkund, the venue of the Congress brain storming session in Haryana.
