Lashing out at the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA-2) government at the Centre, former state president Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajinder Bhandari during a media interaction on Wednesday said that it had broken all records of corruption.

He said the central government had failed miserably in providing good governance and was embroiled in several controversies adding that the controversy, in which the comptroller and auditor general (CAG) report exposed the 'unethical' ways of the central government allotting coal blocks to 'different people related or not related to industries' was the latest.

Bhandari was on a day's visit to Ludhiana. He said scams exposed by the CAG runs in thousands and crores. UPA is looting public money and is not even taking action against those involved in it, Bhandari added.

He said, "The scam estimated to be around Rs 1.86 lakh crore has left all other major scams such as 2G spectrum, Adarsh Society scam, Common Wealth Games scam behind."

Bhandari further added, "Earlier Congress used to blame BJP for raking up issues against them. Now all these scams have been brought out by the CAG and that is not a BJP-backed organisation, but an independent agency."

He added that the UPA was now raising questions on the credibility of CAG which was shows their frustration.

"After the BJP stopped the working of the parliament, after the 2-G spectrum controversy, communication minister A Raja was forced to resign. Now, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should also resign for the controversy raked up after allocation of coal blocks," Bhandari said.
