The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
Judeo Should Quit, Be Prosecuted
After the clear evidence on tape of the BJP Central minister, Dilip Singh Judeo, receiving payment of money for favours to be extended, there is no alternative for the Prime Minister but to remove him from the Council of Ministers forthwith. An investigation should be done under the relevant law on prevention of corruption and prosecution conducted.
It is shocking that the BJP leadership is coming out in defence of the minister's corrupt practice by making wild allegations that the tape has been doctored. It seems the BJP has not learnt any lessons from the tehelka episode. Such brazen disregard for corruption within its top echelons will not be forgiven by the people.
