BJP chief Rajnath Singh blamed Congress for corruption, unemployment and poverty in the country six decades after it had gained independence.

Exhorting people to bring BJP to power, Singh said the country was facing a huge crisis of unemployment and poverty despite not lacking any natural resources.

Referring to former BJP Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's rule, he said the veteran leader had shown a new direction for the country, and mentioned achievements like the Pokhran test, resolution of Sikkim conflict with China, and controlling of unemployment.

The BJP President targeted Congress for security problems in the country and along the border.

He also took on Uttar Pradesh government over the delay in starting cane crushing, and said the nexus between government and mill owners had "affected the farmers very much".

Rajnath recalled his tenure as Agriculture Minister in the Vajpayee government and claimed to have sorted out problems, including the payment of pending arrears.
