Sidhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Thursday hit out at the BJP by saying that it had no right to talk about corruption, as the malaise was deep-rooted in Madhya Pradesh, a state ruled by the saffron party.
Addressing an election rally at the Sanjay Gandhi College ground here, the Congress president said that everyone was aware of the Professional Examination Board scam that took place during the BJP rule in the state.
Similarly there had been a large-scale corruption in the awarding of mining contracts in Madhya Pradesh but BJP avoided talking about the issue, she said.
Ministers and officials were involved in corruption but there was no talk of taking any action against them, she added.
Congress has fielded Indrajeet Kumar Patel from Sidhi. Patel had lost in 2009 from the same seat.
