Jaipur: Attacking former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje for accusing the state government of draining the state exchequer in the last one year, Rajathan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said that she was losing self control in anger.

He said that there was no sense in such remarks made by a person who was "corrupt".

"There was rampant corruption from top to bottom in her government and people know very well about all these. That is why she was voted out in the Assembly elections. Now she is losing her self control in anger," he told reporters on the sidelines of a heritage conference at Jawarhar Kala Kendra here.

"Ministers of her own cabinet had levelled corruption charges against Raje. Her government struck online deals," Gehlot alleged.

"The hype her government created for setting up IT corridor and knowledge corridor was nothing but a mere gimmick just to give land at throw away price by acquiring it from the farmers," he said.

Gehlot claimed that this had led to the land prices going up.

He said that his government had just wanted clarifications from the previous BJP government about all these allegations but Raje was yet to rebut them.

Raje had accused Gehlot yesterday of draining the state exchequer and alleged that the Congress government failed to achieve a single milestone in any sector in last one year.

The SP said at Mehmood's direction, Gulam fled to Afghanistan on parole and worked for Al-Qaeda between 2004 and 2005. During the period, he shuttled between Pakistan and Afghanistan before returning to Hyderabad.

Police, who had been on his look out for long, later traced him in Hyderabad and put him behind the bar once again, Khan said.

On completion of jail term, Gulam went back to Afghanistan, the police officer said.

He recently came to Purnia to cross over to Bangladesh through Indo-Bangla border at Purnia, he said.

"We have requested the central agencies to share more inputs about him," Khan said, adding that police would take him on remand for further interrogation.
