Calicut [India], Sept. 25 (ANI): Highlighting the scams which took place during the former Congress-led UPA regime, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Sunday lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government and said that nobody can ever level corruption charges against the ruling dispensation at the Centre.

Addressing the BJP's national council meeting in Calicut, Shah said scams worth Rs. 12 lakh crores came to light during the former UPA regime headed by Dr Manmohan Singh.

"It has been two and a half years in office, nobody can level allegations of corruption on us," he added.

Highlighting the schemes launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for public welfare, Shah pointed out that the Congress had in the last 68 years given only 13 crore gas connections while the incumbent NDA regime rolled out five crore connections to the poor and rural households under the Ujjwala Yojana.
