Rahul hits Modi where it hurts most; BJP worried about Vyapam taint News Today

You know you're down when even Rahul Gandhi can launch a convincingly fiery attack on you. The Congress Vice President was positively gleeful as he took the Prime Minister to task over the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh and the Lalit Modi scandal.
"I have just one question. Mr Prime Minister, what you say must carry weight. You said 'na khaoonga, na khane doonga' (I will not indulge in corruption myself, nor allow others). Why are you allowing corruption in Rajasthan? What are you doing to bring back Lalit Modi? Why are you not acting against Shivraj Singh Chouhan," Gandhi said.
When asked whether Shivraj Singh Chouhan should quit, he replied, "Of course" and walked off laughing with party workers. The BJP was quick to respond with a familiar retort.
"Unlike Congress and Rahul Gandhi, we are not hushing up corruption cases and nor are we searching for ways to escape from courts' scrutiny. BJP leaders have gone to the High Court and Supreme Court, seeking a CBI probe. When Congress was indulging in scams, then Gandhi was silent," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.
But even a belligerent Hussain knows he's standing on weak ground, and defending Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is unlikely to yield any benefits. The beleaguered chief minister had to face the ignominy of going to Delhi and not getting an audience with party chief Amit Shah or the Prime Minister. And the duo haven't uttered a public word in his defence, leaving Chouhan to assert to HT, "BJP president Amit Shah told me the party stands by me. I have no reason to worry."
