New Delhi: Prime Mnister Manmohan Singh has rejected all allegations of purchases of votes “absolutely and firmly.”
In a brief statement in the Lok Sabha (lower house), rather aggressive prime minister said, “The government rejects all allegations absolutely and firmly of corruptions and purchases of votes during the trust- votes in July 2008.”
Reminding the opposition parties of how people rejected their rhetoric of corruption charges during the 2009 general elections, Dr Singh said that he and his government enjoyed “full confidence of the house and people.”
He further reiterated: “None from the Congress party or the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) did any unlawful act during the trust votes in July 2008.”
The prime minister made a similar statement in the upper house, clarifying that those whose names had been mentioned had out rightly denied them and that the government could not cross check the “veracity” of dispatched diplomacy.
Both houses were immediately adjourned after opposition parties demanded clarifications.
