A day after the extended Winter Session of Parliament ended, BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley told a joint press conference here that the pendency of some anti-corruption bills was due to Congress' failure and not because of the Opposition.
Swaraj, who is the Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, said normal functioning of Parliament was scuttled by Congress members but the ruling party had no control on them.

Swaraj further said that Rahul Gandhi was ‘not even genuine’ in his efforts. She said there were several scams during the UPA government but the Congress vice-president never spoke on it.
"Sau chuhe kha ke billi haj ko chali (after eating 100 rats, a cat goes to pilgrimage)," she said.

 Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley, echoing similar sentiments said Rahul Gandhi is a late entrant in the anti-corruption bandwagon.

“He never spoke on corruption in the last 10 years. But now he says corruption is our (Congress') issue,” he added.
Jaitley asked why the Congress vice-president remained silent when scams related to 2G spectrum, coal block allocation, Commonwealth Games, Adarsh Housing Society and VVIP chopper deal took place.
