BJP president Rajnath Singh Sunday appeared to be taking a leaf out of Arvind Kejriwal’s book when he said his party, if it comes to power, would send all “corrupt” Congress ministers to jail.

“Once we form the government, we will send all corrupt Congress ministers to jail. There is corruption in all directions, be it on jal, sthal or nabha (water, earth or air). Whenever the Congress has formed a government, there has been corruption.

Independent India had never witnessed so much corruption as has happened during the 10 years of Congress rule,” Singh said at a well-attended election rally held here. Tinsukia is part of Dibrugarh Lok Sabha constituency where the BJP has fielded former MLA Rameswar Teli against Union minister Paban Singh Ghatowar.

      Kejriwal was not serious with his promises. Rajnath Singh however is made up of a totally different mould. If he says he will, he will do it!

        Clearly, domestic tourist arrivals in Gujarat have ramped up considerably, with an almost 33 per cent rise in the numbers from within the state, a 50 per cent rise from other parts of India and from non-resident Indian (NRIs), and an almost 100 per cent increase from foreign tourists," said an IIM-A statement here today.
