Akhilesh govt failed to spend even one percent of funds, says BJP

Lucknow: BJP on Thursday claimed the Samajwadi Party government has failed to "spend even one percent" of funds under 115 heads as reflected in the latest CAG report tabled in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

"Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who claims 'free laptop scheme' to be historic, failed to spend even one per cent of the allocated fund," BJP spokesperson Vijay Bahadur Pathak alleged.

The situation was similar in 'Kanya Vidyadhan' in which the entire amount was surrendered, he claimed.

"The situation of those giving slogan of 'poore hote vaade' is such that they surrender the entire amount allocated for distribution of saris among women of Below Poverty Level (BPL) category and blankets among poor, Pathak said.

The state government, which is celebrating 'kisan diwas', allocates funds for strengthening labs producing organic fertilisers and to promote its use, but fails to complete the bidding process. As a result the entire amount remains unutilised, he alleged.

Pathak also claimed that the fund allocated by the government for Ambedkar birth anniversary celebration has not been utilised.
