"During election campaign, PM Modi spoke about scams and said he would not allow corruption. But now scams are taking place  and the latest is the cricket scam, and the MP who raised it has been suspended (from the BJP)," the Congress vice president told reporters on his way back to Delhi after a two-day visit to Amethi.

Tearing into the Prime Minister's promise to root out corruption, the Congress leader said, "PM Modi used to say 'na khaoonga, na khaney doonga' (will not engage in corruption myself, nor will allow others). But today he is silent. People have started losing faith."

Rahul cited PM Modi should take action and conduct inquiry into affairs of Delhi and District Cricket Association(DDCA) of which Jaitley was the president for 13 years till 2013.

His remarks came a day after BJP cracked the whip and  suspended cricketer-turned-MP Azad, charging him with indulging in anti-party activities and accusing him of 'colluding' with Congress and AAP to bring it to 'disrepute'.
