Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president JP Nadda launched a scathing attack on the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) over allegations of corruption against opposition leaders, asserting that a significant portion of them are either in jail or out on bail.

Speaking at an election rally in Maharashtra’s Gondia district, Nadda highlighted the contrasting approaches towards corruption between the BJP-led government and the opposition alliance. He underscored Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commitment to rooting out corruption, juxtaposing it with the purported stance of the INDI alliance favoring the protection of corrupt individuals.

“On one hand, PM Modi speaks of punishing the corrupt…On the other hand, the INDI alliance says that the corrupt should be saved. Now you have to choose whether the corrupt are to be saved or to be punished,” remarked JP Nadda.

Nadda proceeded to list several prominent opposition leaders who have been embroiled in corruption allegations, emphasizing their legal status. He pointed to individuals such as Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, P Chidambaram, and Lalu Yadav, highlighting their legal entanglements.

The BJP president also enumerated various corruption scandals attributed to opposition parties, ranging from the coal scam and Augusta Westland helicopter scam to allegations against leaders like Akhilesh Yadav and Mamata Banerjee.

“Congress did coal scam, Augusta Westland helicopter scam, submarine scam, corruption in rice, sugar, 2G/3G scam, Commonwealth scam…Akhilesh Yadav did a laptop scam, and corruption in the Gomti riverfront…Mamata Banerjee did a teacher recruitment scam, cattle smuggling scam, sand scam,” asserted Nadda, detailing the litany of allegations.

The recent spate of arrests of opposition leaders, including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and BRS leader K Kavitha, further underscores the gravity of the corruption allegations. Kejriwal’s arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in an alleged excise policy scam serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing legal battles confronting opposition figures.

As the political discourse intensifies in the run-up to elections, accusations and counter-accusations regarding corruption are likely to feature prominently, shaping the narrative and influencing voter perceptions. The battle lines are drawn, with each side vying to gain the moral high ground and leverage public sentiment in their favor.
