Sonia GandhiLucknow, Feb 3 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Tueaday accused the central government of slowing down the flow of funds for implementing the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) in the state.”A chunk of funds against the scheme for the current financial year were still pending with the central government, even though the financial year was coming to an end,” she told reporters.

She was replying to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and her son, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, who have repeatedly criticised the implementation of the NREGS in the state.

“I have, therefore, written a letter to the prime minister to invite his attention to the delay in delivery of funds,” she added.
