New Delhi: Mocking at L K Advani`s yatra,
Congress today said the history of corruption in India will be
incomplete without the mention of certain BJP leaders and said
that he should first bring to an end corruption within his
party.

"As far the anti-corruption yatra of BJP`s Prime
Ministerial candidate and permanent PM-in-waiting Advani is
concerned, the history of corruption in India cannot be
complete without mentioning the names and corrupt practices of
Bangaru Laxman, Dilip Singh Judev, B S Yeddyurappa and Reddy
brothers," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi told reporters.

He also took a jibe at senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj
who visited Tihar jail to meet accused in cash-for-votes
case-- two former party MPs and L K Advani`s ex-aide
Sudheendra Kulkarni and expressed solidarity with them.
"If anybody gives such a statement, it appears the person
has lost faith in the judiciary of the country," Alvi said.
He also said that Congress had nothing to with the cash
for vote issue.
