Singh, speaking at a public rally at Indranagar in Agartala, said that in BJP government, if any minister is found involved in corruption, he would be removed from the cabinet.

"Main yakin dilana chahta hun, yadi hamare kisi mantri ke daman par bhrashtachar ka daag lag jaaye, dudh mein makkhi ki tarah mantrimandal se nikal kar use bahar kar diya jaayega. (I assure you that if any minister in our government is accused of corruption, then we would be removed from the cabinet.) But CM of this place doesn't have the courage to remove ministers against whom fingers are raised," Singh said in Agartala.

Expressing concern over the attack on BJP workers in Tripura, Singh said, "Political murders are taking place in Tripura every 2nd day. There is no guarantee of BJP workers' lives. As Home Minister of India, I want to assure that if you bring BJP to power, even CPM cadre will feel safe apart from the citizens."

The home minister said he was surprised to find out that 66 percent of the people live below poverty line in the state.

"Lotus blooms in mud. The CPI(M) government, with its scams and corrupt practices over the last 25 years, has created the ground for the blooming of lotus," he said.

Earlier, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh were referred to as "the weak and sick states of the country" but after the BJP came to power in these states, the problems have been taken care of, the Union minister claimed.

"Not a single minister has indulged in any corrupt practice in the NDA governments under the leadership of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Narendra Modi," he said.

Tripura is set to go to polls on February 18 and the results will be declared on March 3.
