Shah: Jaya Govt most corrupt, Change It
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.
