Former prime minister Manmohan Singh hit out at allegations of corruption and policy paralysis against his government, saying he never used public office to “enrich” himself or his family and friends.

“I say in all humility that I have not used public office to enrich myself, family or friends,” Manmohan Singh said at the national convention of the National Students Union of India (NSUI) here.

He also said that allegations of “policy paralysis” being made against the UPA government were “untrue”.

“When our government left, India was the second fastest growing economy,” he said.

The former prime minister said that “BJP harps on corruption to divert people’s attention to non-issues”.
