Rot always begins at the top !

For long time many staunch anti-Congress folks have been accusing that Congress has institutionalized corruption in our nation. Sadly there was lack of credible evidence to back that claim. Seems Maharashtra state Congress President Mr. Manikrao Thakre and another Congress leader Mr. Satish Chaturvedi have volunteered to buttress this long standing claim, on camera!!

One must be very thankful to these gentlemen for admitting it so calmly & casually, which virtually leaves no room for state/central Congress leadership for any possible explanation/defense. Jay Ho India !
