New Delhi: Coming down heavily on the forceful eviction of Baba Ramdev from Ramlila Ground, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has said that the prime minister has lost all moral right to continue in office.
BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said, “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has always indulged in the ‘conspiracy of silence’ be it the 2G issue, Commonwealth Games (CWG) or this crackdown,” said .
“We want to tell Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi that even Indira Gandhi during emergency couldn’t take away the democratic right, they aren’t going to succeed now,” said Prasad.
“Manmohan Singh has lost the moral authority to rule,” he added.
Declining that the BJP has ceded opposition space to Anna and Baba, Prasad said, “I think it’s unfair to say that. It was Advani who first raised the issue of black money in 2009.”
