Digvijay Singh on Tuesday said the ruling BJP government of Madhya
Pradesh was not only indulged in "rampant" corruption but has
also been anti-poor.

"Rampant corruption is prevailing in Madhya Pradesh
and when a poor man approaches to any official with his/her
problems, they, because of pressure from the top did not even
hear their complaints," Singh said.

He was speaking at the Jan Kranti Yatra launched by
the former MP Sudnerlal Tiwari at the NCC ground here.

Singh claimed that the common man had totally "lost
his faith" in the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government and in the
2013 Assembly elections the BJP will be wiped out from the

"BJP came to power by making false promises like
providing round-the-clock electricity, but everyone knows the
real situation. In rural areas power was supplied just for
four hours forcing the people to remain in darkness," the
former chief minister said.

Referring to ongoing development projects, especially
welfare schemes, he said the fund was coming from the Centre
and BJP was only taking credit.

He also alleged that black marketers of fertiliser,
illegal miners and land mafias are ruling the state.

Referring to corruption, he said the rot was evident
from the fact that wealth worth crores was recovered even from
junior officials.
