Team Anna, Baba Ramdev hand in glove with BJP: V Narayanasamy
Chennai, June 3 (ANI): Reacting sharply to Baba Ramdev and Team Anna's repeated offensive against the Centre, Minister of State (Mos) for Prime Minister's Office (PMO) V. Narayanasamy on Sunday accused them of being "hand in glove" with the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).
Addressing mediapersons here, Narayanasamy said, " The agenda of Baba Ramdev and Team Anna is hand in glove with the BJP. On the question of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate certain issues, both Team Anna and BJP are saying the same thing."
Further, he dismissed the allegations levelled against Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh by Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal, calling them "baseless, unfounded and figments of imagination."
"It has become a fashion for them (Team Anna) to criticise the Prime Minister," the MoS said.
He said the Prime Minister has a "clean record" and is a man of "impeccable integrity."
"The allegations are only for the purpose of confusing people. They are not bound by truth and are ill founded," he said.
On the suggestion of senior BJP leader L.K.Advani to include the Opposition in the process of the appointment of the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) and the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG), Narayanasamy denied having received such letter.
He, however, said the CEC is an independent, non-partisan body with functional autonomy, and that it has become "fashionable" for the BJP to raise issues when a constitutional body is appointed by the government.
"This is my personal view. The Prime Minister will give an appropriate reply," Narayanasamy said. (ANI)
