Accusing the government of selectively targeting people allegedly involved in various scams, BJP leader LK Advani on Friday said it was "scrupulously" protecting itself from any probe.
The BJP leader, who is on the second leg of his yatra against corruption, said the alleged role of some Congress leaders and their contribution to the scams should be probed.
"While so many ministers belonging to allies have been punished, the ruling party has very carefully and scrupulously protected itself. There are demands that the role of some members, senior leaders of Congress party (and) their contribution to these scams should be probed. These demands have not been accepted so far", he told reporters.
He said the last two years have been "very depressing because of the surfacing of numerous scams involving for the first time in the history of Independent India, several members of Central government who have not only to be removed from office because of those scams, but also to be lodged in Tihar prison of Delhi".
"One cannot say who else is going to join company with them (in jail)..".
