Lashing out at the Congress-led UPA Government over the issue of rampant corruption, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Sunday said that the UPA-II is the most corrupt government of all times.

"The functioning of the government during all these years has proved that UPA-II is the most corrupt government. No field has remained untouched by corruption under the rule of the Congress party, whether it is fertilizers, irrigation, health sector, coal, telecom spectrum, oil or the latest chopper-gate," said Joshi, while addressing a press conference here.

Joshi also demanded an apology from the government over Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde's recent 'saffron terror' remark.

"The government has to clear its stand and apologise to the country. Other than him all those officials and holders of offices hailing from the party who endorsed the remarks must also apologise," said Joshi.

Shinde had invited the wrath of BJP after accusing it and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of patronising terror-training camps as well as promoting what he termed as 'saffron terror'. (ANI)
