Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that corruption was flourishing in the States ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party and involved party leaders, while the PM merely talked about fighting graft with slogans.

On the second day of his poll campaign as part of the Congress’s Navsarjan Yatra in north Gujarat, Mr. Gandhi talked about alleged financial dealings involving BJP president Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, and also the recent Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) order slapping a penalty of Rs. 15 lakh on Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani’s Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) for manipulative trades in a small company.

Mr. Gandhi said that the share market regulator had termed Mr. Rupani beimaan (dishonest) and imposed a fine on him, yet there was no word from the Prime Minister on the issue.
