Addressing an election rally here on Sunday, Singh said that no one in the world can date to allege any corruption against the BJP ministers.
"We have also run governments. Kalyan Singh ji and I have headed Uttar Pradesh governments. Atal ji and Modi ji have been Prime Ministers. But not a single charge of corruption was labelled against our ministers. If there were any, and they were proved even prima facie. We would have resigned and headed to our homes," he said.
The home minister said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi cannot commit any act of corruption as he no one to get its benefits. "Modi ji has no family. Whom would he would commit corruption for?" he asked.
The minister attacked Congress over corruption charges on its ministers of the previous UPA governments.
The Home Minister said that the two came together because they knew 'Modi ki aandhi mein hum (SP and BSP) akele tinke ki tarah beh jaenge' (The wave of Modi the SP and BSP on its own will be wiped away)
