    by Pressbrief in

    Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday kick-started her party’s election campaign in Gujarat with a big farmers rally in Rajkot. I want to know what's the stand of BJP in handling corruption? Their double speak on corruption is known to everyone, she asked. “The states ruled by the BJP are neck deep in corruption. Despite the CAG report and other strong evidences, the BJP did not take action against the corrupt. I want to ask you further, who stopped the passage of Lokpal Bill in Rajya Sabha, which was already passed by the Lok Sabha? It was BJP which stalled the passage of this crucial anti-graft legislation. Still they talk big about curbing corruption. Even in your state, there is no Lokayukta for the past eight years. These people are not against corruption, but only against us” said Sonia Gandhi.
