Credit for passing Lokpal bill: BJP attacks Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Dec 20 : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ravi Shankar Prasad attacked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Friday for claiming credit for passing the Lokpal bill, calling it a double-standard act.

"Rahul Gandhi blatantly claims credit for passing the Lokpal bill while he does not utter a word on the corruption that his government does whether it is Adarsh, 2G, Coalgate or Commonwealth," said Prasad, deputy leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha.

He added: "Now, he tries to jump out of his establishment area that he is the only one supporting the bill. This hypocrisy and double-standard the country and people already know, so they are not going to give him credit whatsoever."

The Lokpal and Lokayukta Bill, 2011 was passed in the Lok Sabha Wednesday (Dec 18). The Rajya Sabha adopted the amended bill Tuesday (Dec 17).
