The government is neckdeep in corruption, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said Monday, calling “very serious” army chief Gen. V.K. Singh’s allegation that he had been offered a bribe to clear a tranche of 600 substandard vehicles.
Party MP Prakash Javadekar said revelations by the army chief were “very serious”.
Javadekar, a BJP MP in the Rajya Sabha, said he had given a notice for suspension of question hour to raise the issue.
“The government is neckdeep in corruption…The UPA has lost the right to continue even for a day,” Javadekar told television channels.
The army chief told The Hindu newspaper in an interview that he was shocked after a lobbyist offered him a Rs.14 crore bribe for the purchase of a tranche of substandard vehicles.
Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari said he had not seen the newspaper report but the government would look into the matter.
“The army chief has made certain averments. The government will look into it. If required, the government will come with a response,” Tewari told a TV channel.
