Tiruchirappalli: Mounting a scathing attack, BJP President Amit Shah yesterday accused the Jayalalithaa government of being the ‘most corrupt’ in the country and asked the people to oust it in the May 2016 Assembly elections.

Addressing a press conference here flanked by three Union ministers, including Power Minister Piyush Goyal, he also charged the state government with non-cooperation over implementation of central schemes including UDAY, aimed at helping debt-ridden state power discoms. Goyal had recently said that Chief Minister Jayalalithaa was ‘inaccessible’ and criticised the state government for its non-cooperation.
Projecting NDA as an alternative to AIADMK and DMK, Shah said, “The Narendra Modi government is committed to the welfare of villages, the poor and labour class. I am confident the people of Tamil Nadu will give priority to NDA in the polls. People should change this most corrupt government in India and give NDA a chance.”
