"During UPA rule, the Cabinet, bureaucracy and the people had no faith in the then Prime Minister. Now everyone has faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The BJP-led government has given relief to the country from this crisis of confidence," Shah told reporters during his day-long visit to Goa.

Shah was echoing remarks made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday where he suggested that Congress President Sonia Gandhi had been an 'unconstitutional' authority exercising 'real' power over the PMO during the UPA rule whereas power was now wielded only by constitutional means.

Shah alleged that the UPA, in its ten-year rule, was involved in scams worth Rs 12 lakh crore.

During one year of the Modi-led government, the Opposition has not been able to point out a single instance of corruption, he said.

"We had assured to give corruption-free government which we have delivered. We have completely curbed corruption at higher level," the BJP president said.

"BJP had assured that once we are in power we will expose the black money stashed abroad. The UPA government never spoke about black money issue, but the Modi Cabinet, during its first meeting itself, constituted the SIT and began investigation," he said.
