CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan alleged the Congress was on the decline and people have "lost faith" in the UPA government which speaks regularly about tackling corruption and price rise but does nothing except for getting the ministers under fire resign from the cabinet.
"How many speeches have (Prime Minister) Manmohan Singh and (Congress chief) Sonia Gandhi made against corruption, but the next day one minister resigns. Who is next? In my view, it's Murli Deora. After the allegations levelled against him, what is the propriety in his continuing? He has to go," he told reporters at an interaction organised by the Indian Women Press Corp.
