New Delhi, Jul 20 : Left parties today accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not keeping his promise of giving a “corruption-free” government, and staged nation-wide protests seeking action against senior BJP leaders for their alleged role in Lalit Modi row, Vyapam scam and other controversies.

“On completion of one year of his Government, Modi had boasted that no corruption case surfaced during the period.

But, we told them to wait as there were no corruption charges against UPA government too until sixth or seventh year.

“But even before the NDA government could complete a year, we got to see so many scams coming out. Modi had promised a corruption-free government, but it has been failed so early,”

CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury said while addressing the protesters here.
