NEW DELHI: Hitting back at Congress over the arrest of three of its MLAs with a large amount of cash, BJP on Sunday alleged that Jharkhand has become a “den of corruption”. “The entire Congress leadership, be it a big leader or small, is involved in corruption in the state,” BJP spokesperson Syed Zafar Islam alleged.
Islam accused the party of trying to shift the blame on BJP for the alleged corruption of its MLAs.
Citing a recent probe by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Islam said officials linked to chief minister Hemant Soren have been nabbed for suspected corruption and now the entire country has seen three Congress MLAs travelling to West Bengal with a large amount of cash.
“Congress has been exposed again. Corruption has reached huge proportions in Jharkhand. The state government has been frequently involved in graft and the state has become a den of corruption,” he alleged.
Congress Sunday suspended three Jharkhand MLAs who were caught allegedly with a huge amount of cash in Howrah and accused BJP of attempting to topple its coalition government in the state.
Acting on a tip-off, police on July 30 intercepted an SUV in which Congress MLAs Irfan Ansari, Rajesh Kachchap and Naman Bixal Kongari were travelling on National Highway 16 at Ranihati in West Bengal’s Howrah and allegedly found a huge amount of cash in the vehicle.
