Sidhi: BJP chief J P Nadda on Friday hit out at RJD leader Misa Bharti for her jail remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and claimed that half of the INDIA bloc leaders were either in jail or out on bail in corruption cases.

He also said the opposition alliance has become frantic, sensing its defeat in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.

Misa Bharti, daughter of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, during a recent public meeting in Patliputra Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar from where she is contesting as her party nominee, attacked the Centre and said if the INDIA bloc comes to power, PM Modi would be behind bars.

Nadda, while addressing an election meeting here, said, "Half of the INDI alliance leaders are either in jail or out on bail in corruption cases. Do you want to hand over the government to such people? INDI alliance has become frantic as its leaders have sensed that their defeat is imminent. They are fighting a lost battle and hurling abuses at Modiji in desperation." "Yesterday, Misa Bharti said that if their government comes to power, Modiji will be sent to jail. Modiji served as Gujarat chief minister for 12 years and as prime minister for 10 years without a blemish. He served the country considering it as a family. But Misa Bharti, the daughter of Lalu Yadav, is using such type of language," he said.

"Lalu Yadav is out on bail. Is his wife Rabri on bail? Is their family not facing corruption charges - land-for-job scam, fodder scam - such type of people are speaking this language. Do you all accept such a type of language?" he asked the audience.

He said people were standing firmly behind PM Modi.

"This INDI alliance came into existence for two reasons - Modi says eradicate corruption, but they (opposition leaders) say save the corrupt. All these corrupt people have come together...Birds of the same feathers flock together. Secondly, these parties have come together to save their families," he said.

Attacking the opposition, Nadda alleged there was a laptop scam under Samajwadi Party's Akhilesh Yadav, Lalu Yadav was indicted in the fodder scam, while there was a teacher recruitment scam carried out by ministers of the Mamta Banerjee government in West Bengal.

Former Rajasthan CM indulged in the recruitment scam and KCR (K Chandrasekhar Rao) and KTR (K T Rama Rao) (of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi) carried out a liquor scam, Nadda further alleged.

"Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is in jail for the liquor scam, the JMM was involved in a land scam. Isn't Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi out on bail? Isn't P Chidambaram and his son Karthi out on bail? Half of these (opposition) leaders are in jail. Would you hand over governance to such people," Nadda asked the crowd.

Nadda said most of the parties arrayed against the BJP are family entities and cited examples of the Abdullahs of National Conference, Chautalas (INLD), Badals (SAD), Akhilesh Yadav (SP), Lalu Yadav (RJD), Sharad Pawar and Supriya Sule of NCP(SP), MK Stalin and his son Udhayanidhi of DMK as well as Uddhav and Aaditya Thackeray of the Shiv Sena (UBT).

The only party that is run democratically is the Bharatiya Janata Party, Nadda claimed.
