Can't cherry-pick: PC to BJP

Nation

Finance Minister P Chidambaram Thursday accused the BJP of "cherry-picking" on Maharashtra government's statement that no criminality was revealed against Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde and some other politicians in the Adarsh housing society scam.

"You can't cherrypick and choose what suits you. One must pick the entire decision in toto. One can't cherry-pick," Chidambaram said when asked about the opposition demand for Shinde's resignation.

The Maharashtra government, after being nudged by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, partially accepted the Adarsh report and announced action against indicted bureaucrats but gave a clean chit to politicians barring former CM Ashok Chavan, saying "no criminality was revealed against them".
