A day after Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit challenged the opposition to provide proof of corruption in her government or stop making baseless charges, BJP on Sunday said it will set up an accountability commission to probe various alleged scams in her dispensation in the last 15 years if it was voted to power in the upcoming assembly polls.
"The Accountability Commission will ensure that all those who have looted taxpayers' money during Congress regime are brought to the book.
"No one will be spared if they have indulged in any kind of corruption," Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel said.
Alleging "massive corruption" in Delhi Government, he also slammed Dikshit for "outrightly rejecting" serious charges of graft and said all those involved in wrongdoings will be taken to task if people of the capital makes BJP victorious in the December 4 election.
"The need for the hour has arisen due to the continuous negation of facts by the Chief Minister and her ministers. Dikshit and her whole cabinet has been indicted by at least one and at times more than one of the premier constitutional bodies such as CAG, Public Accounts Committee and Lokayukta.
"But it shocking that the Chief Minister is still blatantly asking for proof of corruption," Goel said.
"The BJP will not let the Congress leaders scoot away with the loot at the cost of taxpayers. Our endeavour will be not only to indict the guilty but to retrieve the money back to the state exchequer.
This money will be used for the welfare schemes," he said.
Rejecting BJP and Aam Aadmi Party's allegations of "widespread corruption" in her government, Dikshit had yesterday challenged them to provide "proof" of their charges or stop making such allegations.
"Both BJP and AAP have been defaming us by alleging that there has been corruption in our government. If you have come across cases of corruption, then please tell us where is the corruption.
