Congress president on Saturday launched a scathing attack on Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh and said that the BJP leader did not act against his son despite his name appeared in Panama papers.
Addressing an election rally at Kanker in Chhattisgarh, he said that CM should explain to the people of Chhattisgarh why no action was taken against his son, whose name appeared in Panama papers.
In Pakistan, prime minister was jailed because his name appeared in Panama papers, he said.
Speaking about the PDS Scam and the alleged mention of ‘CM Madam’ and ‘Dr Sahab’ in a diary, Rahul said he asked Raman Singh who is this CM Madam and Dr Sahab whose names had been found in the diary in connection with the scam but the CM didn’t answer.
Rs 36,000 crore belonging to the people of Chhattisgarh was looted, the Congress leader alleged.
Coming down heavily on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said Modi says he's fighting against corruption but when he comes to Chhattisgarh he doesn't tell the people that the state's chief minister is corrupt.
''Your Rs 5000 core disappeared in chit-fund scam, 310 FIRs were registered but no action was taken because CM was involved, Gandhi alleged.
