The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

TIRUCHI­RAP­PALLI (TN): Mount­ing a scathing at­tack, BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah has ac­cused the Jay­alalithaa gov­ern­ment of be­ing the “most cor­rupt” in the coun­try and asked the peo­ple to oust it in the May 16 assem­bly elec­tions. Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence here flanked by three Union min­is­ters, in­clud­ing power min­is­ter Piyush Goyal, he charged the state gov­ern­ment with non-co­op­er­a­tion over im­ple­men­ta­tion of cen­tral schemes, in­clud­ing UDAY, aimed at help­ing debt-rid­den state power dis­coms. Goyal had re­cently said that CM Jay­alalithaa was “in­ac­ces­si­ble” and crit­i­cised the state gov­ern­ment for not join­ing the Cen­tre’s UDAY scheme. Pro­ject­ing NDA as an al­ter­na­tive to AIADMK and DMK, Shah said: “The Modi gov­ern­ment is com­mit­ted to the wel­fare of vil­lages, the poor and labour class. I am con­fi­dent the peo­ple of Tamil Nadu will give pri­or­ity to NDA in the polls.” “Peo­ple should change this most cor­rupt gov­ern­ment in In­dia and give NDA a chance,” the BJP chief said in a sharp at­tack on Jay­alalithaa whose AIADMK has ex­tended is­sue-based sup­port to the Modi gov­ern­ment in Par­lia­ment.
