"Had Advani begun his anti-corruption yatra from Karnataka, it could have given some credibility to it and people would have then taken his claims on corruption seriously," party spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary said.

She alleged BJP suffers from "selective amnesia as well as collective amnesia" adding the party leaders are now so "busy in the rush for power"" that "they have forgotten whatever they have said and done earlier."
