Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia today hit out at the BJP-led governments at the Centre and the state and said that, despite tall claims, rivers in the country continued to remain polluted.
"They make tall claims about cleaning rivers, but whether it is the Ganga, Yamuna, Chambal, Narmada or Kshipra, all of them are still polluted," Scindia, the Congress' chief whip in the Lok Sabha, told reporters here.
He was speaking after performing puja at the famous Mahakaleshwar Temple along with his wife and son.
"People are fed up of their hollow promises and their anger is reflected on the roads," Scindia, the party's MP poll campaign committee chairman, said.
Addressing the party's "Janakrosh" rally, he criticised the state BJP government for rising number of rape cases and poor law and order situation.
"Corruption is rampant in the state and the government is not doing anything to check it," Scindia alleged.
Former MP, Premchand Guddu, who is considered close to Digvijay Singh, also accompanied Scindia on the occasion.
