The NCP on Thursday said that in the wake of court verdict in the high-profile 2G spectrum allocation case, the Narendra Modi government should resign and go for fresh elections.
"The 2014 Lok Sabha polls were contested chiefly on the issue of corruption and 2G scam was the major case cited. In view of today's judgement, the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi should own up moral responsibility and tender resignation," NCP leader Tariq Anwar told UNI here.
Mr Anwar, who was part of the Manmohan Singh ministry, said "it was one of the most embarrassing situations when Mr Modi and others charged UPA regime under Manmohan Singh of being most corrupt government in Indian history".
"Today, the court verdict has made it clear that all allegations made by the BJP essentially on presumptive loss was false and baseless. They need to resign and go for fresh elections," Mr Anwar said.
