Bhopal: BJP national president J.P. Nadda on Tuesday asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s crusade against corruption will intensify after the general election.

Addressing a series of public meetings in Madhya Pradesh, Mr Nadda said that Mr Modi will ensure that all the corrupt and scammers are sent to jail after June 4, when the results of the seven-phase LS polls will be announced.

The BJP president said that many mega-scams related to coal, telecom, submarines and the AgustaWestland chopper scandal happened during the previous Congress-led UPA government at the Centre.

The Congress did not spare the land, the sky or even the ocean and committed scams in all three worlds, he said.

Terming the INDIA bloc a group of "dynastic and corrupt parties", Mr Nadda said that all scammers came together to save each other.

“When they hold their rallies, they keep two chairs vacant. They say these are the chairs of our chief ministers who are in jail. Wait for June 4, Modi Ji’s campaign against corruption will become more intense and all the guilty will be punished," he said, adding that the key agenda of the INDIA bloc is to save their families and corrupt people.

“On one hand, Modi Ji is working to eradicate corruption and on the other hand, dynastic parties of the INDIA bloc or Ghamandiya Gathbandhan are saying 'save corrupts',” he said.

Pointing out that many of the Opposition leaders are either in jail or on bail, Mr Nadda said, “While (Delhi chief minister) Arvind Kejriwal and his ministers are in jail, Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are on bail.”

At the public rallies, the BJP president accused the Congress of hoodwinking people by making false poll promises. He said: “The Congress makes promises before the polls and forgets them after the election.”

Mr Nadda addressed three public meetings at Tikamgarh, Rewa and Satna in Madhya Pradesh. He underlined the development works undertaken by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre and said that the BJP has delivered what it promised.

The polling for the second of the four-phase LS elections in Madhya Pradesh will be held on April 26. The BJP had won 28 out of 29 seats in Madhya Pradesh in the 2019 LS polls, whereas the Congress had bagged the lone Chhindwara parliamentary constituency.
