Hopeful of the NDA coming to power after the 2014 Lok Sabha polls,Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday said after the formation of the NDA government at the Centre,UPA leaders will be made accountable for “every single penny they had plundered from the public exchequer”.

Addressing a gathering to mark Gurgaddi Diwas of Sri Guru Angad Devji in Khadoor Sahib,Badal,said: “The UPA government is the most corrupt government in the annals of Indian history. The NDA government will not spare these corrupt leaders for their misdeeds.” He added that Congress leaders had mercilessly looted public money during their tenure and multi-crore scams like CWG,coalgate,Adarsh and others speak volume of rampant corruption in UPA regime. “The amount of money that these UPA leaders had stashed in foreign banks as black money from their earnings from such scams,was equal to the annual budget of the state.”

Coming down heavily on the UPA,Badal said: “This spineless government has miserably failed on all fronts and due to its weaknesses,the internal and external sovereignty of the nation was in deep peril.” Badal also lamented that UPA’s performance on the economic front was also dismal.

Terming Central grants as a “huge fraud” with the people,he said: “In the absence of a fair criteria for devolution,these Central grants are a mere sham. The riders imposed by the Union government while issuing these grants were resulting in lopsided development of the country… If these grants were disbursed in an impartial manner,then unprecedented development could have been witnessed in the state.”
