Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday targeted the Congress on corruption saying that the party had committed the Tughlaq road election scam whose money was being used for the poll campaign of its President Rahul Gandhi.
Addressing a rally at Sidhi in Madhya Pradesh, Narendra Modi said that corruption was the only protocol in the Congress culture.
Modi said that the law was equal for all and that even his residence should be raided by the Income Tax department if he was involved in any wrongdoing. He further said that the food meant for children and pregnant women under a government scheme was snatched from them and the money was siphoned off to Tughlaq Road residence of a Congress leader in Delhi.
Attacking Gandhi, Modi said that money is being used for the poll campaign. The Income Tax Department recently conducted raids on close aides of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and Congress leader Kamal Nath.
The department has also detected a trail of Rs. 20crore suspect cash allegedly being moved to the headquarters of a major political party in Delhi from the house of an important person who lives on Tughlaq Road, home to many VIPs.
Modi further said that the money disbursed by the central government is yet to reach the beneficiaries which are meant for farmers in Madhya Pradesh and also accused the Kamal Nath dispensation in the state of not sharing with the Centre the list of farmers requiring the help.
Modi, while taking a jibe at the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister said that perhaps Kamal Nath was too busy to share the list with the Centre due to his Switzerland visit and political grooming of his son.
Modi also took potshots at those from the opposition parties aspiring to become the next prime minister adding that they have already ordered tailors for new attires. He also asked the people from the opposition wanting to become the Prime Minister can wipe out terrorism.
