Jaunpur (UP): Coming down heavily on the
Congress, UP Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday
alleged it had given birth to corruption in the country.
"Congress leaders were the first to start the trend of
corruption and scams in the country. Later, leaders from
several other political parties followed them," he told an
election meeting here.
"The Congress has given birth to corruption in the
country," Akhilesh said.
Attacking the BJP, he said the party had invoked the
name of god for deriving political mileage.
He said his party, if voted to power in Uttar Pradesh,
would initiate an inquiry into corruption during the BSP rule
in the state.
"We will also probe installation of stones worth over Rs
40 thousand crores in parks," Akhilesh said.
On the first two phases of the assembly election in the
state, he said the SP was way ahead of other parties."The
BJP and the Congress are nowhere in fight."
