The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president J P Nadda on Thursday said that only BJP was working in a "clean" manner to ensure progress of the poor, reported the PTI.

All other parties indulge in corruption and their leaders are either in jail or out on bail, he said, speaking at a party event in Mumbai.

The Congress only gave slogans of poverty alleviation but the Narendra Modi government brought 25 crore people out of poverty, JP Nadda said.

"Only the BJP is ensuring advancement of the poor and the country in a clean way. All other parties do corruption," he said.

"Be it Sonia (Gandhi), Rahul (Gandhi) or Lalu Prasad, they all are out on bail. Soren (apparently referring to former Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren) is in jail," JP Nadda further said.

While 50 per cent of the country's population was living in poverty during former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru's years in office, the proportion increased to 60 per cent after Indira Gandhi came to power, the BJP chief claimed.

"The Congress only gave slogans in the name of the poor, devised schemes and plans in the drawing room but they were never implemented," he said.

Meanwhile, the BJP president JP Nadda on Wednesday asked leaders from party's Mumbai unit to ensure that the BJP's ideology reaches the last person in society, reported the PTI.

According to the PTI, JP Nadda urged Mumbai BJP leaders to give a befitting reply to opposition attacks.

JP Nadda, who is on a two-day visit to the city, met BJP office-bearers from all 36 assembly constituencies, MPs and MLAs from Mumbai.

He urged BJP leaders to use social media and seek the support of prominent personalities, stressing the need to formulate a strategy to ensure that the party's ideology reaches the grassroots levels. He also urged BJP leaders to give a befitting reply to attacks by the opposition.

Nadda also chaired the election management committee meetings for all six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai.

In the 2019 general elections, the BJP and undivided Shiv Sena, which was its alliance partner then, had won three seats each in Mumbai.

In the Maharashtra Assembly polls held that year, the BJP won 16 of the 36 seats in the city, while 14 were bagged by the Sena.

The state's political landscape has undergone dramatic changes since then, with splits in the Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).
