Gurgaon Congress MP Rao Inderjit Singh, during a public meeting in Rewari on Sunday, said that honesty was not the "sole franchise of the Aam Aadmi Party, as there were honest people beyond it who had been fighting against corruption".
While addressing the gathering under the banner of Haryana Insaaf Manch, he said: "There are leaders who are beating the trumpet of honesty and of wiping corruption without doing anything, while I have been fighting against corruption for the last 35 years."
Exhorting his supporters, he said that they should leave no stone unturned in exposing the AAP activists with "shady background" with the help of genuine records. Giving his own example, Rao, a bête noire of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, said that despite being in power, he never hesitated in raising public issues.
He had resigned from party in last September citing lopsided development on the part of state Congress.
On the Punjab and Haryana High Court's recent verdict declaring land at Ulhavas village in Gurgaon as 'illegal', he said that he had raised his voice in support of the matter in 2007, which received the stamp of the court on Friday.
He also urged his party workers to upload their activities on social networking sites for spreading the message of party.
Notably, Rao had been in news after he trained his guns on the party's central leadership and chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda when he sought a "fair probe" into charges of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra involved in controversial land deals.
