Patna: Ruling NDA on Friday took a dig at Congress president Sonia Gandhi`s statement on "corruption" in centrally-funded schemes in Bihar saying it reflected her "disappointment and desperation".
"There is no substance in her charge of corruption in the centrally-funded schemes... it reflects her sheer disappointment and desperation", BJP general secretary Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters.
Describing the Congress as "mother of corruption", Prasad wanted to know from the Congress what happened to corruption in CWG involving around Rs 70,000 crore and 3 G spectrum deal.
"Probe after probe is being ordered by the government into the CWG corruption and even senior Congress leaders are engaged in trading charges against each other", he remarked.
"There is not even an iota of doubt about the clean image of Nitish Kumar and Sushil Kumar Modi in Bihar", Prasad said.
Earlier, talking to reporters before leaving for election campaign, JD(U) national president Sharad Yadav too criticised Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi for their diatribe against Nitish Kumar.
"It will be better if they come forward for an open debate instead of levelling baseless charges at the time of elections", Yadav said.
