- We have to unite against those politicians who seek an escape route by dubbing police action as a political conspiracy: PM Modi
- PM lamented that the reputation of the political class has been at stake due to the behaviour of some politicians
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked the political class to join hands against those seeking an escape route by dubbing action against graft as a political conspiracy, apparently indicating the recent graft cases against leaders of the Trinamool Congress and the RJD.
Addressing an all-party meet ahead of the Monsoon Session of Parliamentbeginning on Monday, he said action against corrupt politicians is a must.
“When the law takes its course against those who loot the nation, then we have to unite against those who seek an escape route by dubbing such an action as a political conspiracy,” the Prime Minister tweeted.
Besides ensuring integrity in public life, action against corrupt politicians was a must. Every party should identify such leaders amongst themselves and disassociate itself from them, PM Modi said.
