New Delhi: Opposing Pranab Mukherjee's candidature for the post of President, Team Anna on Sunday lashed out at the Finance Minister, saying he is unfit to be the President.
Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia have alleged that Pranab should not contest the Presidential poll as there is a corruption case against him. They alleged he has been named in the Rs 2500 crore rice export scam. Team Anna said Pranab should come clean on allegations of irregularities in rice export to Ghana when he was the External Affairs Minister.
They also alleged corruption in Scorpene deal and Navy war room leak when Pranab was the Defence Minister.
Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia have alleged that Pranab should not contest the Presidential poll.
"There are serious allegations of corruption against Pranab Mukherjee. It will be wrong if he becomes the President. There should be an impartial probe into the charges we have levelled against Pranab Mukherjee," Kejriwal said.
Manish Sisodia Sunday said, "All the allegations against Pranab should be investigated freely because it will raise big questions if any person who has corruption charges will become our President."
Earlier, the Prime Minister's Office had rejected Team Anna's demand to investigate allegations against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on coal blocks allocation.
