Chatra, Jan 21 (UNI) Former Jharkhand Chief Minister and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Democratic) president Babulal Marandi today charged the UPA-backed Madhu Koda government with ''indulging'' in corruption.
Addressing his first election rally here, Mr Marandi said the state, formed with expectation for the development of downtrodden, was now facing ''misgovernance'' of the UPA.
