UPA’s corruption giving bad name to country: BJP

New Delhi: Attacking the Congress over a US media report about payment of bribes to local officials in India by retail giant Walmart, the BJP said on Tuesday that UPA’s corruption is giving a bad name to the country.

“The revelation is damaging the image of brand India created by the NDA government. The corruption of the previous regime is surfacing regularly giving a bad name to the country,” BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao said at a press conference.

He also alleged that Congress is synonymous with corruption.

A US newspaper has reported that Walmart paid millions of dollars as bribes to junior officials to help move goods through customs or obtain real estate permits.

In 2012, Walmart disclosed that it had spent $25 million over a span of four years to lobby US lawmakers to help it gain access to foreign markets including India.
