A day after getting his party’s backing, Bharatiya Janata Party president Nitin Gadkari on Saturday made a scathing attack on the Congress on corruption, bad governance and unemployment.

Addressing election rallies at Reckong Peo in tribal Kinnaur district and Chopal in interior Shimla, Mr. Gadkari, who is facing allegations of dubious funding of his companies, said: “The Congress ruled the country for the longest time, except for brief period of eight years and poverty, unemployment, corruption and lack of infrastructure are their gifts to the people.”

Mr. Gadkari flew into Himachal Pradesh on Saturday morning to campaign for the November 4 Assembly elections.

He said that instead of helping people, the Congress had benefited big leaders and corporate houses while doing nothing to ameliorate the conditions of the poor, checking unemployment and curbing price rise.

Comparing the rule of the National Democratic Alliance and the United Progressive Alliance, he said prices were stable, the rupee was strong and steps were taken to strengthen the basic infrastructure during the NDA regime. The UPA government had failed on all fronts and did nothing for the overall development of the country.

“Farmers are committing suicide, the common man is reeling under rising prices and unemployment is on the rise. But the government has failed miserably to solve these problems,” he added.

Nagpur boy didn't lose his humor yet!

Thanks to Anna -cum-Kejriwal team for showing your blackenned faces.Please don't make fool of us any more otherwise you will spend your rest of life in jails.

Mr.Gadkari has no rights to talk about corruption. Let him see his back first. Both Congress and BJP are corrupted parties.

I agree corruption is a gift of Congress to people like Gadkari who who
have accepted and perpetuated gleefully. I am surprised how a man who
is surrounded by such a big controversy, talk about others' corruption.
I think the politicians never pause and introspect.

This is called pot calling kettle black.These thick skinned
politicians,not withstanding their neck deep involvement in
various scams,always prefer to just wash their faces so simply
with a broad smile and pointing their fingers somewhere.The time
is ripe for the judiciary to take suo moto action against the
culprits,who are by virtue of their relations and positions in
political field siphoning of public funds at ease,on the basis of
the reports bombarded day and night by the T.V.Channels.In the
absence of which the common man has to BARE THE BRUNT for all the
misdeeds of the politicians,for no fault of theirs.
