Rahul Gandhi at Khushi Nagar, U.P “Mayawati’s elephant eats money”
“We sent fertilizers to Uttar Pradesh for the farmers but they are being black-marketed in Nepal. As a result the farmers in the state do not get the required fertilizers and urea sent by the Union Government,” he argued.
Commenting on the misuse of Central funds Rahul Gandhi said, “The money sent through the MGNREGA does not reach the poor. Same is the case with the Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY). The scheme meant for the benefit of the poor women is also being misused in Uttar Pradesh. Every poor woman is entitled to get Rs 1,400 under this scheme to meet the expenses for the delivery. But in Uttar Pradesh the money meant for the poor women do not reach them. Instead they are forced to bribe the hospital authorities to avail the benefit. This clearly indicates that the money that should have actually reached the poor is not reaching them.”
