According to Krischer, Dobrindt had enabled the "dieselgate" scandal and alleged cartel formation by looking the other way.
The Left party joined in the criticism of Dobrindt with politician Herbert Behrens saying: "The cartel of the automotive industry is obvious ... and the Minister of Transport again claims not to have had any clue." ■
