Guwahati: Corruption in the country has
reached unprecedented heights due to "misrule and bad economic
policies of the UPA government", BJP president Nitin Gadkari
said on Sunday.
"The Congress led UPA government`s misrule and bad
economic policy has resulted in large scale corruption,
security threat and price rise", Gadkari told a massive rally
at the end of the two-day national executive meet here.
The BJP president alleged that ruling Congress leaders
in Assam have shown that they were no less corrupt than their
counterparts in New Delhi.
"We urge the people of Assam to dethrone the corrupt
Congress government in the state which has been involved in
several scandals including the multi-crore North Cachar hills
development council funds," he said.
Taking note of allegations levelled by rights activist
Akhil Gogoi "that chief minister Tarun Gogoi owns five
buildings in the United States," Gadkari dared the chief
minister to file a defamation suit if the charges are false.
The BJP leader also dwelt on the charges of corruption
against the UPA government and claimed 10 lakh farmers had
committed suicide due to wrong policies.
