Hitting out at the UPA-led government at the Centre, BJP today said it does not have the guts to conduct an enquiry to ascertain the source of currency notes used to make multi-crore rupee garlands presented to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on two occasions recently.
"Mayawati wore cash garlands made with corrupt money. However, the Union government does not have the courage to initiate an enquiry into the source of the money," leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said at a party function here.
The senior BJP leader also flayed the Union and the Uttar Pradesh governments for failing to combat price rise.
"In spite of the country's top post being held by a economist, the UPA government at the Centre is not taking any strong steps to combat price rise of essential commodities," Jaitley said without taking name of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
He said BJP will launch a mass rally on April 21 in Delhi against the Centre on price rise issue.
He also alleged that the Centre is not taking any strong action against Naxals.
