.New Delhi, Jun 17 (PTI) Stepping up attack on the Congress after it targeted its president Nitin Gadkari, the BJP today put a four-point poser to Sonia Gandhi, questioning her silence on the various scams.

Seeking an apology from the Congress party for the "shameful, sub-standard and uncivilised" attacks on Gadkari, BJP chief national spokesman Ravi Shankar Prasad lashed out at the ruling party, saying it is used to the "darbar culture" and is unable to digest the fact that a common worker can rise to the level of national president in the opposition party.

Asking Gandhi to explain why she had "remained silent" on matters concerning corruption in the 2G Spectrum case, the Commonwealth Games scam, the Adarsh Cooperative Housing scam and the Delhi minister''s indictment by the Lok Ayukta, the BJP said it expected Sonia Gandhi to reply to the questions posed to her, "if she was serious and sincere in the fight against corruption".

Alleging that the Congress president''s claims of tackling corruption seriously were a mere eyewash, Prasad said, "There was nothing wrong in the BJP chief''s comments on Congress president that her claims of fighting corruption were hollow.

"The nation understood everything as the Congress president fears many skeletons would come out in case she went ahead with dealing against corruption sternly."

He said the outburst reflected that a "cornered Congress has become deeply frustrated" on the issue of corruption.

The BJP asked Gandhi "why she kept quiet when Rs 1.76 lakh crores of public money was looted in the 2G scam and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was giving a clean chit to the then Telecom minister A. Raja".
