"We saw corona in our government but today there is a new virus came in the country it's called dictatorship under the Modi government.

I will tell you, it is to take corrupt leaders into BJP and give them Rajya Sabha seats, make them Deputy CMs and CM and free them from ED and CBI cases," he said.
