BJP seeks public views on 'charge sheet' against UPA

August 14, 2013 18:52 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday sought public views on the 'charge sheet' it intends to prepare in seeking to corner the UPA government over its "failure" on several fronts and to highlight the scams unearthed during the present regime.

The Chargesheet Committee constituted under the aegis of the BJP Campaign Committee launched an effort to "crowd source" inputs in preparing the charge sheet against the Congress-led UPA ahead of the next general elections.

In a joint statement, Deputy Leaders of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha Ravi Shankar Prasad and Gopinath Munde said the BJP shall as a team, go to different parts of the country and through 'Jan Sampark' or 'direct people's contact' programmes elicit views from the public at large.

"We invite people of India to actively participate in this crowd sourcing exercise," the statement said.

The BJP said people can reach the party through www.bjp.org/upachargesheet and released other URLs through which people using applications like telephone, Facebook, Twitter, powerpoint, Youtube and Flickr to access and provide inputs to the Opposition party in including their views in the charge sheet.

"This way we feel the voice of the people will also actually find a place in the charge sheet we are preparing. The series of corruption making the Congress-led UPA as the most corrupt government in independent India will be highlighted," the statement said.

The two leaders said corruption has also led to unbridled price rise and people today find the simple onion as expensive as a litre of petrol.

Announcing that the BJP would hold 'Jan Sampark' or 'direct people's contacts' at Mumbai on September 4, Lucknow on September 11, Bangalore on September 21 and Guwahati on September 28 to express their views to be included in the charge sheet.
