August 23rd, 2011 - 11:37 pm ICT by IANS  

Raipur, Aug 23 (IANS) The Congress party Tuesday alleged that Chhattisgarh’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has been misusing, for years, the funds being provided by the central government for development works — mainly for the Maoist-hit areas.

“For the past seven years, the Chhattisgarh government has been misusing central government funds to the tune of millions of rupees provided for development of Maoist-hit areas,” Congress leader and former chief minister Ajit Jogi said in a statement here.

“State’s Maoists-hit areas continued to be deprived of development activities despite massive funds being made available by the central government. I seek a separate audit for central funds being spent in Chhattisgrah so that people should know the realities,” he added.
