Rahul Gandhi blames BSP, SP for halting Uttar Pradesh's development

Lucknow, Thu, 16 Feb 2012 ANI

Lucknow, Feb 16 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi has blamed the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) for halting Uttar Pradesh's development.


Addressing a gathering here, Gandhi accused the state government of being apathetic to the problems of the poor, saying that while it was labourers from Uttar Pradesh who built the infrastructure of other states, they themselves were forced to live in appalling poverty.


He also said that the Central Government had sent billions of rupees to the state for its development, but the state government had prevented the money from reaching the people.


"We have sent billions of rupees for Lucknow. Go and ask your chief minister where that money went. We sent you your hard-earned money, and any progress that has happened has happened because of you. Go ask Mayawati and Mulayam Singh what happened to the money," Gandhi added.


The Uttar Pradesh polls are being viewed as an opportunity for major parties to re-establish their foothold in the country's fifth largest and most populous state.


A new 403-member state assembly will be elected in March. The poll results will broadly indicate trends for the 2014 general elections. (ANI)
