BJP questions donations to Congress by PSUs
Strongly objecting to two public sector firms paying political donations to the Congress party, BJP today said this violated all propriety and demanded action against the guilty. "The Congress and the two public sector companies MMTC and STC, whose names have figured in reports, should clarify their stand on this issue," senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley said. He said the details of these donations, which were reportedly obtained through an RTI application, should be furnished to the Income Tax Department and the Election Commission as well. "Any political party, before taking such donations from a PSU, should have thought ten times that this is completely against all propriety," Jaitley said.
