The BJP today reacted sharply to the visit of the Union Ministers to Gujarat,saying they should first look within at the slew of corruption charges against the central government.

“A group of ministers are on a tour of non-Congress states to find out how they are probably ‘not functioning’ like the Union government as though that is an ideal. I am being absolutely sarcastic as it is outrageous,” BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.

She further said the Union Cabinet should first attend to the important questions being raised about its performance before judging the non-Congress ruled states.

“When they have not answered questions on who is responsible for the 2G spectrum scam,Commonwealth Games and the Shunglu Committee report,or the ISRO-Dewas deal,the Adarsh scam on which you find three former chief ministers allotting flats left,right and centre to their relatives,” Sitharaman said.

“They are in Gujarat today. They should look at neighbouring Maharashtra,where flats have been allotted to relatives of former Chief Ministers in the Adarsh scam,farmers are committing suicide,and scandals are coming out where (Congress) government’s failures being observed,” she added.
