Tewari takes on Modi, rakes up issue of fake encounters in Gujarat

New Delhi, Sep 11 (ANI): Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari on Wednesday lashed out at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for blaming the ruling Congress Party for rampant corruption in the country.

Tewari indirectly blamed Modi for the fake encounters in Gujarat.

"The alphabetical prima that he (Modi) follows starts with an 'F' which stands for fake encounters and ends with a 'G' which stands for genocide. So, therefore the alphabetical prima that he follows or his government has been following is perhaps very well known to this country," he told media here.

Launching a scathing attack on the Congress-led UPA over the rampant corruption and scandals, Modi yesterday said the country is on the 'verge of destruction'.

Addressing an election rally at Amroodon ka Bagh in Jaipur, Modi said there is no accountability in the Congress-led UPA II Government at the Centre.

"With Congress, we can't make India corruption free. For that the medicine is to free ourselves of Congress," said Modi.

"Now, the children will learn A for Adarsh scam, B for Bofors scam, C for CWG scam, D for 'Damad Ka Karobar'. This is a government, which is without a 'Neta' (leader), Naitikta (morality), 'Neeyat' (intention) and 'Neeti' (policy)," he added.

Modi said that the people don't know what is happening in the country.

"Our Prime Minister went to participate in the G20 Summit. He returned, but no one in country knows what issues he raised there, what he told the international community. All he said was - who he wants to work under," said Modi.

"The country has seen a government in last 10 years which has no accountability and power to take right decisions," he added.

The BJP's poll panel chief said the Congress has to be thrown out of power if the people want the country to get rid of corruption. (ANI)
