Lok Sabha elections 2019: ‘Why didn’t BJP act against corruption?’: Raj Thackeray

“The Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government also spent crores on irrigation projects, then how come 28,000 villages are drought-affected. Where did the money go,” Raj Thackeray said.

Raj Thackeray, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief, in his last election meeting questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) why they had failed to take action against corrupt politicians despite their high-voltage campaign before the 2014 polls.

“BJP president Amit Shah is asking what action has been taken against those accused in a Rs70,000-crore scam. You are in power. You need to answer. Did the scam really take place or did you just create an atmosphere for your benefit,” questioned Thackeray.

“The Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government also spent crores on irrigation projects, then how come 28,000 villages are drought-affected. Where did the money go,” he added.

“How come Ajit Pawar and Sunil Tatkare are still free? Chhagan Bhujbal was arrested, but then set free. What of further action,” he added.

He said the BJP had talked of taking action against Robert Vadra, but then took a U-turn.
