Attacking BJP, Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said the opposition party is taking corrupt ministers thrown out by others and was running the “most corrupt” governments in states ruled by it.

“Ministers are being removed and the BJP is taking them. They took Babu Singh Kushwaha, who is the most corrupt minister. He is amongst the most corrupt ministers. BJP took a trip across India against corruption,” he said in an apparent reference to L.K. Advani’s rath yatra.

“But they run the most corrupt governments in Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Gujarat and Jharkhand and here (in UP) they have taken Babu Singh Kushwaha,” he said.

On Saturday, Mr. Rahul had claimed that Mr. Kushwaha had approached Congress first after being sacked by Chief Minister Mayawati but his plea to join the party fold was turned down.

He also attacked Ms. Mayawati alleging that thousands of crores for MNREGA sent to Uttar Pradesh was eaten by the “magical elephant” sitting in Lucknow, in an obvious reference to BSP’s election symbol.

“The magical elephant built by Ms. Mayawati is eating people’s money,” he said.
