Senior Congress chief and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor on Tuesday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s anti-corruption slogan ‘na khaunga, na khane dunga’ (will neither take bribes nor enable others to take action). Tharoor tweeted an inventory of eight leaders related to the BJP and its allies who have been going through corruption allegations earlier than becoming a member of the celebration, together with Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and former Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa.
Different names on the checklist have been Suvendu Adhikari, Bhavna Gawli, Yashwant Jadhav, Yamini Jadhav, Pratap Sarnaik, and Narayan Rane.
Narayan Rane, who began his political profession with the Shiv Sena, joined the Congress in 2005. However later fashioned a brand new political celebration in 2017 and merged it with the BJP in 2019. Rane was accused of cash laundering and land scams. Himanta Biswa Sarma, who confronted corruption allegations within the Louis Berger case, was referred to as a key suspect by the BJP throughout their marketing campaign in opposition to him. Nevertheless, the saffron celebration inducted him in 2015 and went on to raise him to the submit of CM.
Shashi Tharoor mentioned that he at all times puzzled in regards to the slogan’s which means and mentioned, “I suppose he was solely speaking about beef,” hinting that the at Prime Minister Modi’s help for the meat ban in India. The tweet comes simply days after Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in reference to alleged irregularities in a liquor excise coverage case.

Kharge requested in regards to the PM’s slogan and questioned if it was only a “jumla.”
