Rahul Gandhi dubs Madhya Pradesh as country’s ‘corruption capital’

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi labelled Madhya Pradesh the “corruption capital” of the country on Monday, accusing the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party government of spreading corruption.

Gandhi remarked while referring to a purported viral video of Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar’s son and a “middleman” discussing several crore rupees.

“Today, Madhya Pradesh is the capital of corruption,” the Congress leader stated during a poll rally in the state’s Neemuch district. “You must have seen the video of BJP leader Narendra Singh Tomar ji’s son. They are looting your money. The people of the state are suffering losses due to the loot of BJP leaders.”

Gandhi also promised in his speech a caste census if the Congress wins both State and Centre elections.

He also vowed that his party government would provide LPG cylinders for 500 rupees, waive farmers’ loans up to 2 lakh rupees, pay a minimum support price (MSP) of 2,600 for wheat, which will go up to ₹3,000 and free electricity up to 100 units, reported PTI.

He added, “The Congress had formed government in MP (after the 2018 polls) and the moment it started working for farmers by waiving loans of 27 lakh cultivators, the BJP, in collusion with big industrialists, stole your government of farmers, labourers and small shop owners and came back to power.
