All tainted ministers in India belong to Congress: Modi
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday said that all the tainted ministers in the country belonged to Congress.
"Do you want to be relieved of corruption? If you want then we need to remove this corrupt government in order to eliminate corruption," said Modi, while addressing a rally in Sujanpur.
"Yesterday the PM said there are so many BJP ministers in jail, and that the BJP has corrupt ministers whereas all the tainted ministers are in their government, and they are blaming us," he said.
"For the last 60 years, the Congress has captured the seat of power. Politics has become a business for them but for the BJP politics is a way to serve the nation. This is one such government, which no one trusts and no government can run without the trust of people," he added.
He further said that the poor condition of the state was a result of Congress rule.
"Parents worry about whether their daughters will return home safely or not and people are going door to door for employment. Despite the will to work, the youth is not able to feed their old parents," said Modi.
"If there is a corruption genesis in this country then its only and only the Congress and if they are not corrupt then we would like t know what difficulty do they have in bringing back the black money that is abroad," he said.
"These corrupt people have kept the money of the people of India in foreign banks. Till when will the Congress keep saving itself? The root cause of corruption in this nation is the Congress," he added.
He also said that by repeatedly telecasting 'Incredible India'would not attract tourists in the country.
"Just by repeatedly telecasting 'Incredible India' doesn't mean the tourists will come visit our country. Tourism can be achieved easily," Modi said.
"Just open a tea stall and serve these tourists who are waiting in long queues in their vehicles. Although, these days when I talk about tea vendors few people get upset," he added.
