Shiv Sena on Wednesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks in Doha about India being plagued by corruption “maligned the nation’s image”, and questioned if scams in BJP-ruled Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat can be attributed to the Gandhi family.

Since Modi is the face of the nation, other countries may believe what he says about India which in turn might affect the financial condition of the country, an editorial in Sena’s mouthpiece ‘Saamna’ said.

Vowing to root out corruption in India, the Prime Minister had on Sunday said in Doha that he “faced problems” by depriving the “sweets of many” and saved over Rs 36,000 crore annually by stopping leakage and theft in government schemes.
