Rahul accuses Odisha government of diverting central funds
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Monday accused the Naveen Patnaik government of diverting money sent by the central government for welfare of tribals.
Addressing a rally here, Gandhi said the Congress-led UPA government had ensured that the farmers get proper remuneration for their land acquired for development projects.
Gandhi said that money under tribal sub-plan was being diverted in Odisha.
"Money is sent under tribal sub-plan. They (Odisha government) divert it" for using for other purposes, Gandhi said.
He also accused the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance of not "talking about the welfare of the poor and tribals".
"They do not speak about the welfare of the poor, the tribals," Gandhi said.
Elections for the state's 21 Lok Sabha seats and to the 147-member assembly would be held simultaneously in two phases April 10 and 17.
