BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today launched a scathing attack on Congress, saying those immersed in corruption are now giving "sermons" against it.
"I heard the speech of a big Congress leader yesterday. He was speaking against corruption. See their daring. No one else can dare do this. These people are so immersed in corruption. Despite this, they make innocent face and speak against corruption," Modi said at a huge public rally here.
"The Adarsh commission report has indicted ministers. On one hand, Maharashtra government decides to save the corrupt and on the other, a Congress leader is giving sermons in Delhi," he said in an apparent reference to Rahul Gandhi.
"Congress speaks one thing and does another," he said.
"Whether Congress leaders are in government or not, all things are done as per their directives. But the same people, when they make a speech, one feels as if they are speaking on behalf of some other government, for some other country," he said.
"Congress is involved in divide and rule for vote bank politics. This has been their speciality. They learnt this from British," Modi said.
"While Sardar Patel united India, Congress pitted brother against brother and created states on linguistic basis," he said.
"The problems we face won't be solved till we free India from vote bank politics and get it on path of development politics," he stressed.
The reason for the problems the country faces is not our history or geography but Congress-ruled governments, he said.
"The voice of 'Congress-free India' should go out from Mumbai, which first gave the call of 'Quit India' against British rule," the Gujarat Chief Minister said.
"I wish that in 2014 elections, votes should be sought for the country and not in the name of party. We want to say, "Vote for India", to free the country of dynastic rule, corruption, inflation, bad governance and to maintain unity of the country," he said.
