Addressing a rally in the BJP Ruled Chhattisgarh, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi launched a line of attack on the state Chief Minister alleging him of corruption citing the Panama Papers on Saturday.

The Congress Vice President said, "Pakistani Prime Minister had to resign as his name was in Panama papers, a country where the law doesn't work as it is supposed to, but no action has been taken against the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister despite his and his family's name being mentioned in the papers."

Rahul Gandhi also said that the government had promised a steel plant in the state, which would have brought job opportunities, but nothing was done.

He also taunted the healthcare of the state saying the Chief Minister asks people to get their treatments in Vizag, claiming if the UPA government wins the next election, people of Vizag would have to come to Chhattisgarh for treatment.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi is on his two day trip in BJP-ruled Chhattisgarh. He had on Friday interacted with various delegations in Jagdalpur in the Maoist-hit Bastar region followed by interaction with Congress leaders in the state.

After the rally, the Congress Vice President is also scheduled to attend workers' training programme in Jagdalpur, meet representatives of party student wing NSUI and address the 'Jan Adhikar Rally' at Government High School Ground in Markel village of Jagdalpur.

The Indian National Congress, on its website, announcing the Vice President's rally claimed, "BJP rule in Chhattisgarh is responsible for 1.2 crore people being multi dimensionally poor in terms of education, health and living conditions! Little wonder that the 51-year Naxal insurgency thronging even after 13 years of the Raman Singh government."

It added that the Punjab Chief Minister Raman Singh’s anti-tribal and misogynistic policies have caused a 35.14% loss in Chhattisgarh’s HDI.
