The BJP has accused the  United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the Centre of trying to subvert and undermine the authority of the executive, legislature and judiciary.

Speaking to reporters at the BJP state office here on Wednesday, party’s national spokesman Sudhanshu Trivedi said the UPA government, under the leadership of prime minister Manmohan Singh, was demolishing the entire structure of the state.  The government had not only been indulging in rampant corruption but also desperately trying to cover up its misdeeds by transcending the limits of dignity of several esteemed institutions. “The UPA government is trying to undermine the authority of the CAG and parliamentary committees like the PAC and JPC to shield its corrupt practices. It crossed all limits of corruption and is encouraging corruption at all levels,” he alleged.

The leadership of the Congress had become thick-skinned and arrogant and was even ignoring the comments and observations of the judiciary, he alleged and said it was proven that the UPA government tried to subvert the judicial process in the Supreme court on the issue of CBI’s affidavit in the coal blocks allotment scam and even more alarming was that the  subversion was done with the involvement of the law ministry and the prime minister’s office. 

Turning to the affairs of the state, he said that though six ministers were facing corruption charges, the chief minister, instead of removing them from the cabinet, was protecting them. He reiterated his party’s position that it  was in favour of statehood for Telangana.
