Cabinet reshuffle fails to target corruption: BJP

January 19, 2011 19:34 IST
Claiming that Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh did not get a free hand in effecting United Progressive Alliance II first ministerial reshuffle, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday said the exercise has "failed" to show the government's resolve to fight corruption.

"The reshuffle has failed to show the government's resolve to fight corruption. The only message one gets is that even today, the PM is not able to bring into effect a reshuffle by rising above pressure. He has failed on the expectations of the people," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said. He alleged the government was not capable of giving any political message.

"No brave efforts were made to remove those against whom there were talks of corruption or those whose names have appeared in Niira Radia tapes. The Prime Minister has only sent his ministers from one building to the other," he said.
