Derek O’Brien, the spokesperson of the Trinamool Congress has alleged that the BJP is the ‘most corrupt party’ in the world. To this, the BJP has hit back saying ‘it will continue to do good things for the society’
Bengaluru: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) was in the news recently for its “cut money” issue. “Cut money” in simple terms, refers to commission.
As the TMC was cornered over the issue, its spokesperson Derek O’Brien now has termed the BJP the “most corrupt party”.
Not just that, he even termed the recent Lok Sabha poll as “unfair, unjust and unconstitutional” in the history of India.
The TMC had raised the issue of electoral reforms in the Parliament.
The Times of India quoted the leader as saying, “Electoral reforms is a very important issue for us as we are battling the world’s most corrupt party. This was the most unfair election in the history of Indian democracy. It was unfair, unconstitutional and unjust. It was run by an unfair and unjust EC (Election Commission).”
The party has sought a collegium for appointing the election commissioner and reintroduction of paper ballot.
He further added, “Now, the Parliament must step in and decide if they want to amend the law, bring in a legislation, they have to do something, otherwise they will sell the country. The BJP itself is corrupt, it buys elections and also MPs.”
The BJP’s reaction was rather assertive that it banks on the trust of the people to take it forward.
“Grapes are sour. Such allegations have no meaning. He and his party leader (Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee) talk in the same fashion. If the BJP was the most corrupt party in the world, how would we have gained so many votes? People trust us and know that it is the only party that can deliver the goods. It is this faith and trust that is the driving force. Irrespective of the allegations, under the charismatic leadership of Narendra Modi, we will keep doing good things to the society,” said Sreenath Sheshadri, a spokesperson of the BJP.
