PM Modi making ‘corrupt-mukt…’: Congress on ex-MP Naveen Jindal’s exit

[ad_1]

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh took potshots at former MP and noted industrialist Naveen Jindal’s exit from the party and joining the BJP, saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “wanted a Congress-mukt Bharat”, but he has instead made a “corrupt-mukt Congress”.

After joining the BJP on Sunday, the Chairman of Jindal Steel and Power said that it was “a very important day in my life. I am proud that I joined the BJP today and I will be able to serve the nation under the leadership of PM Modi”.

“I want to contribute to the ‘Viksit Bharat’ dream of PM Modi,” he said.

Earlier in the day, Jindal also thanked the Congress and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as he resigned from the party.

Responding to the development, Jairam Ramesh tweeted,” When you need a giant-size washing machine, this had to happen. And after making ZERO contributions to the party in the last ten years, saying I am resigning from it is a big joke.”

He even attached screenshots of two news articles about Jindal being summoned as an accused by a Delhi court in connection to an alleged money laundering case.

In a second tweet, the senior Congress leader said, “The PM wanted a Congress-mukt Bharat.”

“Instead he has made a Corrupt-mukt Congress by deploying so many washing machines along with the ED and the CBI to force corrupt Congressmen to flee to his embrace!”

Just hours after Naveen Jindal joined the BJP, he featured in the party’s fifth list of 111 candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

As per the list, Jindal has been given a ticket from the Kurukshetra seat in Haryana, which he represented as a Congress leader from 2004 until his loss in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
