Lucknow, Sep 12 (IANS) The opposition Samajwadi Party (SP) Friday accused the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government of wasting government funds on the pretext of providing relief to flood victims.”All claims of Mayawati (Uttar Pradesh chief minister) about the relief measures for those affected by floods are false,” SP national general secretary Ashok Bajpai told reporters here Friday.
“The situation in various districts of Uttar Pradesh continues to remain grim. No flood-related relief has been provided in several areas of the state,” he added.
“On the pretext of providing financial assistance to the flood victims, Mayawati is wasting money on increasing her security cover.”
“She is also spending the government money unnecessarily in the name of urbanisation and industrialisation of the state,” said Bajpai.
