Dubbing the Manmohan Singh government as the most corrupt, BJP leader LK Advani on Tuesday said some of its ministers were already in jail while some were waiting for their turn and asked people to overthrow the UPA in 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
"The Manmohan Singh government is the most corrupt government in the country which has not only some ministers in jail due to corrupt practices but some more are waiting for their turn," Advani said addressing an election rally in Didihat town of the district on the last leg of his campaign trail in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand.
"From the Nehruvian era in 1952 till date, I have not seen a more corrupt government than UPA-II in my long political career. This government needs to be kicked away in 2014," he said.
Claiming that the BJP is the only party capable of delivering on its promises, he said it cannot just provide the basic needs of people but also clean governance.
Projecting Uttarakhand chief minister Bhuwan Chandra Khanduri as the most honest politician, he said it was due to his cooperation that the NDA government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, could successfully complete construction of the most modern highways across the country.
"Even today as the chief minister of Uttarakhand, BC Khanduri has proved his honesty by passing the Lokayukta Bill which is being termed as the best anti-corruption law in public interest by even foreign political commentators," the BJP stalwart said addressing the rally in support of party candidate and state chief, Bishen Singh Chufal.
