Raipur, Jun 22 (UNI) Former Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Ajit Jogi today said there are numerous issues, including corruption and unfulfillment of promises, against the Raman Singh Government in the state and he is facing difficulties in selecting more serious issues among them during the forthcoming Assembly polls.
Mr Jogi made the statement while talking to UNI here. He was replying to a question on dearth of issues before the Congress.
''There are no dearth of issues before the Congress. In fact, the list is so long that it will not finish until Assembly elections are over and the party is facing difficulties in picking up more serious issues,'' Mr Jogi said.
Alleging that not just the state ministers but heads of different corporations had also acquired huge properties in different parts of the country, he said media reports about a few ministers purchasing properties in Mumbai and Chennai reflected just one per cent of corruption prevailing in the government.
Referring to the ongoing 'Vikash Yatra' being taken out by the Chief Minister to propagate achievements of the government, Mr Jogi said Dr Singh is actually repenting for his failure to fulfill poll promises during his yatra.
He said people would provide him a befitting reply during the upcoming assembly elections.
Speaking about spiralling inflation, Mr Jogi said reining in the inflation was not the responsibility of one individual but a collective responsibility. The BJP was raising hue and cry over the price rise but was providing patronage to black marketers and hoarders.
Mr Jogi pointed out that the government had not reduced taxes on petroleum products and earning profits from increased prices.
However, it was misleading people in this regard.
