BJP organizes protests against corruption in New Delhi

June 11, 2011 - New Delhi

Leaders and activists of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday organized protests in several places across New Delhi against corruption, and to press their demand for the retrieval of black money stashed in banks abroad.

BJP's Delhi President, Vijender Gupta, led the protest and encouraged party members and activists to continue their struggle for justice and wiping out corruption.

Speaking to mediapersons at one of the protest sites, senior BJP leader Vijay Goel said the public needed to realize the nature of the current government.

"A prime minister cannot be called an honest person if the people of the country are corrupt. He (Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh) doesn't have any authority. All the authority is with the Gandhi family who don't have any responsibility," Goel said.

"The country should see and realize that who is ruling over them and who is behind corruption, and why no one is bringing back black money," he added.

Hundreds of BJP activists and supporters were seen shouting slogans against the Central government, bearing placards and banners that read 'end corruption'. Many people also came forward to sign a signature campaign.
