Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi took a jibe at Congress by relating the alleged scams under the Centre's supervision to alphabets, at the mega rally in Jaipur on Tuesday.

"Congress has invented a new way to recite alphabets with each letter standing for something different. Now a student will learn A for AdarshScam, B-BoforsScam, C- Coalgate and CWGScam, D- Damad Ka Karobar (son-in-law's business, referring to Robert Vadra's controversial land deals in Haryana) at school level," said Modi.

The Gujarat Chief Minister along with BJP President Rajnath Singh addressed a mega rally in Jaipur on tha last day of state BJP president Vasundhara Raje's 'Suraj Sankalp Yatra'.

About four lakh party workers, district party functionaries, MLAs, MPs and senior party leaders attended the rally.

Raje's Suraj Sankalp Yatra began in April, travelling about 14,500 km to cover 181 Assembly constituencies for the elections in November. It will be concluded on 10 September with a speech by Modi.

Modi attacked the Congress on various counts, the first being on the alleged scams that continue to haunt the UPA-2 government during its tenure.

"I think the remedy to corruption is in poison. There is absolutely no accountability. They are not willing to answer anything. Corruption is a part of Congress. The person who is more corrupt succeeds in Congress," he said

"With Congress we cannot make India corruption free. To make India corruption free the medicine is to free ourselves of Congress."

He also talked about the deprecating condition of the rupee under the governance of the Congress Party. "What is the situation of the Rupee? It is in the hospital. I have question for Congress - do we save the Government or the falling Rupee. And do we save our image or the nation? Sadly Congress wants to save its own image and the Government," Modi said.

Surprisingly, the mega rally did not witness a big speech by the BJP election campaign chief as the it was wrapped up within an hour.

Modi is next headed for a rally in Rewari in Haryana on 15 September. At Rewari, Modi will meet ex-servicemen from Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and National Capital Region. Former Army Chief General V K Singh was also invited and is expected to address the rally.
