MUMBAI: The BJP spoke about cleaning up the river Ganga, but during its regime banks have got "cleaned up" instead, Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel said today.
He was speaking at an event organised by the Mumbai unit of the Congress here.
"The BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to say they would not let corruption happen in the country. However, (liquor baron) Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi (who is at the centre of alleged scam at Punjab National Bank) escaped from the country after stealing the nation's money. It seems that the BJP is encouraging corruption," Patel said.
Neither prime minister Modi nor any of the BJP leaders have given any assurance about bringing the fraudsters back to the country within a specific period, Patel said.
"Banks have got cleaned up during the regime of those who spoke about cleaning up the Ganga," he said.
"Social media brought Narendra Modi to power.
The same social media can make this government fall as well," the Patidar leader said.
