After Smriti Irani, Congress targets Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad for non-criminal background

09, Jun 2014 By Lavkesh Singh

New Delhi: After deriding the Union HRD minister Smriti Irani for not even being a graduate, Congress leader Ajay Maken today took a dig at the Minister for Law and Justice after he revealed (after diligent discourses of public documents) that Ravi Shankar Prasad had no criminal cases filed against him.

Mr. Maken pointed out that given his lack of experience in committing crimes, and his inability to have proven his credentials as a criminal, Ravi Shankar Prasad was another wrong choice in the Modi cabinet.

Maken alleged Ravi Shakar Prasad was clean.

“What a Cabinet of Modi? Minister for Law and Justice is not even a criminal! Look at Google results of crime cases against him (as suggested by Akhilesh Yadav)!” Mr Maken tweeted.

Unlike the previous tweets which invited caustic remarks, this tweet from the Congress leader has attracted immediate support from many regional parties such as the SP, the RJD and the BSP. However, these parties have now begun to compete amongst themselves as to would have produced the best Law Minister.

“We planted several candidates who would qualify as the Minister for Law and Justice, considering their impeccable track record in all possible crimes” a senior Samajwadi Party leader told Faking News.

“The ministry was planned keeping in mind the imminent rise of the Third front to be led by Mulayam Singh Yadav. Unfortunately, with 4 seats in the present Lok Sabha, Mr. Yadav has decided not to become the Prime Minister.”

The leader, however, fled when asked about how would he produce the best criminals when Google suggested that bigger crimes were happening outside UP, as claimed by none other than Akhilesh Yadav.

Mayawati rubbished the ‘Google remark’ by Akhilesh Yadav, saying that the best criminals were indeed found in UP and not elsewhere, but was quick in pointing out that she retained the best of the lot.

Comments from AAP leaders are conspicuous in their absence, given the complexity of the issue, where they are confused as to whether to support the Modi cabinet against their convention or castigate the cabinet over the issue as is customary.
