Brazening out her own long-standing connection with the Reddy brothers, Sushma Swaraj put it all on the Congress, reports IBN Live:

Senior BJP leader and the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj, on Tuesday fired another salvo at the Congress saying that the ruling party got ‘Mota Maal’ (kickbacks) from Karnataka’s Reddy brothers too. Sushma had on Monday alleged that Congress party had received hefty kickbacks in the coal blocks allocation.

“Laloo Yadav wants to know as to who got ‘Mota Maal’ from Reddy Bros? I would like to inform him and the country that the Mota Maal from Reddy Bros has also gone to the Congress Party. All the Mines were allotted to them by the Congress Government on the recommendations of the Congress Chief Minister. I demand that all documents related to the recommendations and allotment to Reddy Bros be made public. The country will then know the truth as to who got them the monetary benefits and who made recommendations for them. All the facts should be placed before the nation,” Sushma tweeted on Tuesday.

See Tehelka for background on Sushma Swaraj’s connection with the Reddys. The connection with ex-CM of Karnataka, Yeddyurappa is well known, as is the fact that G. Janardhana Reddy himself was part of the BJP government in Karnataka.

The very fact that Mr. Laloo Prasad made a sarcastic comment and Sushma Swaraj rose to the bait shows not only that the barb hit home, but also that extreme corruption amongst the political class, those sanctified by sitting in the Parliament, is a matter of common knowledge amongst themselves. The disruptions of parliament are drama aimed at us.

It does not get more brazen than this!
