Telecom minister Kapil Sibal Sunday alleged that there was "rampant corruption" under the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh.


At a press conference in Bhopal, he said crores of rupees had been recovered in raids on the residence of an IAS couple in the state and it appeared as if the entire bureaucracy was corrupt, but the state government was not doing anything about it.

The people had now seen the true face of BJP and they would defeat it in the Assembly elections in November this year, Sibal said.

He also claimed that news channels did not highlight the good work of UPA.

"This happens because the (coverage of) good work by the UPA 2 may not lead to rise in TRPs," Sibal said.
