Money transferred through Speaker's office: Yechury
July 25, 2008 23:22 IST
Senior CPM leader Sitaram Yechury suspected that the Lok Sabha Speaker's office was allegedly indulged in transferring money for the opposition MPs, who voted in favour of the UPA government during the trust vote.
He told media in Tiruchi in Tamil Nadu, "I learn from the media and was directly informed that money was transferred to the MPs through the Speaker's office."
He also said "the truth will come out if an enquiry is held. We want the truth to come out as early as possible."
Condemning the serial blasts took place in Bangalore, he said it was a foul play and people should not fall prey to the rumours at this juncture. It is the act of terrorists and anti social elements.
The CPM leader said that the party would launch a nationwide campaign to create awareness on inflation.
Though the inflation had fallen by .02 per cent, it did not make any impact on the whole sale price index of the essential commodities, he claimed.
The public distribution system should be strengthened and speculative trading should be stopped, he said.
Despite the loan waiver scheme of the Centre, to the tune of Rs 70,000 crore, the agrarian crisis and suicides continued, he alleged. This proved that the government failed to address the grievances of farmers.
