Congress president Rahul Gandhi Friday said all BJP leaders were "corrupt", citing a magazine’s report that said former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa paid Rs 1,800 crore as bribes to top leaders of the saffron party.
The report by The Caravan magazine cited a diary of Yeddyurappa containing details of the alleged pay-offs to senior BJP leaders.

"All 'chowkidars' (watchmen) of the BJP are thieves. NoMo. Arun Jaitley. Rajnath Singh...," he tweeted, tagging the report.
The Congress has demanded an investigation into the diaries by the Lokpal to ascertain whether the bribes were actually paid.
"The Congress campaign is in shambles. Now even forgery can't save them. Few loose sheets given by a Congress minister is only as credible and reliable as Rahul Gandhi's leadership skills," Shah claimed on Twitter.
