Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that “party was committed to fighting corruption at all levels and has demonstrated its will by taking prompt action in every case that has come to light”. Accusing other political parties of doublespeak on the issue, he said: “Those who were truly committed to fighting corruption do not go about talking. Other political parties only indulged in much loud talk on corruption,” he asserted.
Citing the example of the Lokpal bill that was tabled in parliament in December 2011, Gandhi said: “I stood up in parliament for a strong constitutional Lokpal bill that would have built the institution of a truly independent and powerful Lokpal on
the lines of the Election Commission, which has proved that institutions can work independently in this country.
