BJP has lost right to talk on corruption: Scindia

Gwalior (MP): Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Jyotiraditya Scindia has said that the BJP has lost its moral right to attack Congress on the issue of corruption since many of its leaders are facing graft charges.

"Top BJP leaders including former party president Bangaru Laxman, Dilip Singh Judeo and now former Karnataka Chief Minister, B S Yeddyurappa and the Reddy brothers have been indicted for corruption. They absolutely have no moral right to talk of corruption against the Congress," the minister told reporters here last evening.

On Advani`s `Janchetna Yatra` to take on the UPA on issues of corruption and blackmoney, Scindia said that instead of taking out a yatra, the senior BJP leader would do well if he introspected on the state of affairs in his own party.

He said that as far as the Congress was concerned, it was committed to weed out corruption through good

governance and effective legislation including the Lokpal Bill. The young leader criticised the ruling BJP government in Madhya Pradesh for its apathy towards completion of projects which had been launched long back.
