Taking potshots at the Gujarat Chief Minister for not expelling Babubhai Bokhiria from the state cabinet despite him being made accused in an illegal mining case, AICC General Secretary and Communication Department in-charge Ajay Maken said that neither the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nor Modi has right to speak on the issue of corruption.
"Why there has been no Lokayukta in Gujarat since 2002?" he asked.
Maken also took on the BJP's campaign committee chief for sharing dais with BJP ex-president Bangaru Lakshman who was convicted in a corruption case.
He also asked Modi to explain why Nitin Gadkari's name was withdrawn at the last minute from the race for BJP president's post.
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress-led UPA over the rampant corruption and scandals, Modi earlier in the day said the country is on the 'verge of destruction'.
Addressing a rally at Amroodon ka Bagh in Jaipur, Modi said there is no accountability in the Congress-led UPA II Government at the Centre.
"With Congress, we can't make India corruption free. For that the medicine is to free ourselves of Congress," said Modi.
"Now, the children will learn A for Adarsh scam, B for Bofors scam, C for CWG scam, D for 'Damad Ka Karobar'. This is a government, which is without a 'Neta' (leader), Naitikta (morality), 'Neeyat' (intention) and 'Neeti' (policy)," he added.
The BJP's campaign committee chief for 2014 Lok Sabha polls also took a jibe at Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh over his remark that he is ready to work under Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's leadership.
"Do we know what issues the Prime Minister raised in G20 Summit? When he came back, he only said who he wants to work under," he said.
Dr. Singh had earlier on Saturday said Rahul Gandhi would be an ideal choice for the Prime Minister's post after the 2014 general elections, and added that he would be happy to work for the party under his leadership.
"I have always maintained that Rahul Gandhiji would be an ideal choice for Prime Minister's post after 2014 elections," Dr. Singh said onboard Air India One, when asked if he would be looking to run for a third term in office.
"I would be happy to work for the Congress party under the leadership of Mr. Rahul Gandhi," he added during his media interaction while returning home from the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg.
Modi, who is leaving no stone unturned to win the election battle for the BJP both in the state and Centre, said the people of the country now regret their decisions that they made five years ago.
"The people told me that we made a mistake five years ago and we will correct that mistake of the last election," he said.
Modi, believed to be just days from being announced as the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate for 2014, also attempted to reach out to the common man ahead of the polls.
"Whoever joins the BJP I tell them this is not just membership. You become members of our family," said Modi.
"For the Congress Party youth is a voter, for us the youth is power," he added.
The assembly elections in four states, including Rajasthan, later this year have been hyped as the semi-finals before next year's general elections.
